Pisum sativum Also known as snow peas and snap peas are a cool season vegetable. The pods are eaten whole before the seeds are fully mature. Plants may grow tall up to 2 meters and therefore need to be trellised.
For many years Holland-Select is active in research and has established important improvements in the plant habit, diseases resistance, color and yield. Recent varieties are now stringless which is a benefit for all. Growers, processors and the final consumer.
New lines are being developed specially adapted for mechanical harvest to enable processors to market this excellent product more easily in food mixes or as frozen or canned vegetable.
