PEA ‘Telephone’ Vegetable Seeds

Botanical Name: Pisum sativum

‘Telephone’ peas, also known as ‘Alderman,’ are renowned for their sweet flavor and prolific production. These tall, bushy plants bear an abundance of delicious peas, perfect for shelling and enjoying fresh from the garden. Hardy and disease resistant, ‘Telephone’ peas thrive under optimal growing conditions.

‘Telephone’ is an heirloom shelling pea variety that grows as a climber to 1.8m, so requires a trellis. Peas do best between 13*-18°C: frost damages flowers.

Reduce fungal problems by avoiding periods of high humidity and getting water on the leaves. Practice crop rotation to avoid disease buildup.

Plant Type: Annual climbing pea.

Rows: Space rows 45 – 60 cm apart.

Spacing: Leave approximately 7.5 cm between plants.

Details: Lightly mulch seed rows to prevent soil crusting. Water well immediately after sowing, then refrain from watering until seedlings emerge.
