Green Arrow Pea History

What is a Green Arrow pea? Green Arrow is a shelling pea variety, which means its pods should be allowed to grow to maturity before being harvested, then the shells should be removed and only the peas inside eaten. At their biggest, these pods grow to about 5 inches (13 cm.) in length, with 10 to 11 peas inside. The plant grows in a vining habit but is small as peas go, usually reaching only 24 to 28 inches (61-71 cm.) in height. It is resistant to both fusarium wilt and powdery mildew. Its pods usually grow in pairs and reach maturity in 68 to 70 days. The pods are easy to harvest and shell, and the peas inside are bright green, tasty, and excellent for eating fresh, canning, and freezing. Click here to learn more about green arrow peas.

Growing Green Arrow Pea

Peas are a cool weather crop.  They need full sun in early spring.  Sugar Snap and Snow peas need a trellis or pole to climb and typically get anywhere from 3-6′ tall {depending on the variety}, so keep that in mind when you choose a location.  Green arrow peas typically do not need to be trellised because they only grow about 2′ tall. They are best grown in raised or garden beds. Peas like rich soil with good drainage.  They do not do well in the heat, so plan them as an late spring/early summer harvest.  Provide them with a trellis or pole to climb.
