Peas are easy to grow, producing masses of pods loaded with sweet-tasting peas that can be eaten raw or cooked, and used in salads, stir-fries and as a traditional accompaniment to meat dishes. The sweetness of peas quickly diminishes after picking, so it's best to eat them as soon after harvesting as possible.
There are many pea varieties to choose from, ranging from early maturing peas that can be sown in autumn and are ready to harvest in June, to maincrop cultivars that don't mature until October. Dwarf varieties don't need staking but produce fewer pods, while sugar snap and manetout peas are the easiest to grow.
Pisum sativum 'Kelvedon Wonder' is a heavy yielding early maturing pea, ideal for successional sowings throughout spring and summer. It produces 2 pods per node, with each pod containing up to eight peas. It shows good resistance to pea wilt, and tolerance to downy mildew.
Grow Pisum sativum 'Kelvedon Wonder' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
