When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. Soil temperatures must be above 40°F. In USDA zones 8 or warmer, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest

Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 - 24 hours before sowing.

Harvesting: Edible pod peas should be picked before the seeds start to form. Peas that are too mature will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest daily. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick pods with the other, as the vines are brittle.
