Hurst Greenshaft is one of the most popular varieties. It produces heavy crops of long pointed pods which are produced in pairs containing about 10 peas of wonderful flavour. The plant will grow to an approximate height of about 60cm. Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.
