Harvesting: Shelling peas should be harvested when the pods are plump, about 3 weeks after flowering.

Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick the pods with the other; vines are fragile.

If you want a more compact plant. A plant grows more like a bush but would benefit from some support that grows the best pea ever, your prayers have been answered. Wonderful flavor. It is the best
