Mushy peas? Mmmmmm
... yes please!!
Ah yes, nothing like a bag of chips and some mushy peas on a wet winter night to warm the cockles of your heart. The Suttons team know all about fish and chips coming from sunny Devon and they have decided to bring a little bit of the seaside to your garden!
So if you fancy growing your own mushy peas … just like the ones from childhood trips to the chippy. Look no further than Suttons new Pea ‘Maro’. This premier ‘marrowfat’ variety is ideal for making your own mushy or as some proper old Devonians call them ‘soapy’ peas. Harvest your peas when the pods are fully dry and mature and the peas are hard and firm. Peas can also be soaked for stews and casseroles. These little beauties can also be eaten fresh when the pods are young - although the peas are less sweet then most garden varieties they do have a distinctive savoury taste.
Sow from March for delicious peas from May.
