Peas are an ideal crop for the garden, as fresh pods are far superior to those from the supermarket. There are different kinds of varieties: round-seeded hardy kinds for overwintering, tall maincrop varieties which take 15-16 weeks to mature, and the dwarf wrinkle-seeded early varieties ready about 11-12 weeks after sowing. 'Hurst Greenshaft' is a maincrop variety which produces a heavy crop of long pods, each with at least 10 peas per pod. The pods can be harvested from June to July and have an excellent flavour. The Royal Horticultural Society has recognised these fine qualities by giving it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
