July 2016 - PLEASE NOTE: Peas should not be grown in the Wairarapa for the next two years to help eradicate the Pea Weevil
The advantage of Alderman is the extended harvesting period.
From sowing you can expect to pick your first peas in about 2½ months and picking can continue for a month or more. These plants have a tall growth habit that will require support, but is well worth the effort for the heavy crops produced. Large, curved, dark green pea pods each containing up to 11 tender peas with great flavour.
