Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
"Alaska Peas" grow vines two to three feet tall, so allow ample space and support. They are known for early ripening, and each pod contains up to 8 smooth, round peas.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and plant in very early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food and organic matter. Continue planting at 2 week intervals until midspring. Plant again in late summer for late fall crop. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Provide support for tall growing varieties. Water by soaking soil to reduce danger of disease.
Harvesting: Pick when seeds have enlarged in the pod, while still bright green. Hold vine while picking to avoid tearing it..
