Pea ~ Delikett (untreated seed)

Pea ~ Delikett (untreated seed)

This improved varity produces a high yield of 8-9cm (3-4") pods with excellent flavour but all on a compact plant which grows to a height of 65cm (24") tall.

Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.
