Peas : Mammoth Melting
A classic Snow Pea that lives up to its name, can be used as cut flowers
Mammoth Melting Snap Pea pods are used like snow pea pods. The thick, stringless, 4"-5" flat edible pods encase creamy-white seeds. It is a high yielding, early, uniform and wilt-resistant variety. The pods are excellent for stir-frying, steaming, freezing, or eating fresh. Mammoth Melting pea vines produce white blossoms that are beautiful enough to use as cut flowers.Fabaceae Pisum sativum
Peas are one of the easiest crops to save seed from. They are self-pollinating, though a small amount of insect pollination may also occur. Isolate varieties by a minimum of 50' for home use. Ideally you will isolate flowering varieties by at least 150 feet. In dry weather all you have to do is leave the pods to mature and dry on the vine. In wet weather you may have to cut the vines and dry them under cover. When the pods are crisp and brown remove the seeds. These should be dried and stored in a cool dry place.
