Strike pea is a standard early garden pea which produces peas earlier at cool temperatures than other types.  Strike produces 6-7.5 cm (2¾”-3”) blunt ended pods with 7-8 medium large dark green peas inside.  The plant’s dark green vines don’t need any type of staking or trellis and, instead, can grow in a bush formation with an average growing height of 56-61 cm (22-24”).  Space rows 30-45 cm (12-18") apart. Do not thin the peas as they emerge from the soil after germination.


Growing Instructions:


Direct sow seeds in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked, or in late summer for a fall crop. Choose a location with full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. Sow seeds 2.5cm (1”) deep and 5-10cm (2-4”) apart in rows spaced 45-60cm (18-24”) apart. Provide support for vining varieties. Keep soil moist and cool to promote germination. Seeds should sprout in 7-14 days. Peas prefer slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer before planting and once more halfway through the growing season. Harvest peas when pods are plump and the peas inside are tender. Regular harvesting encourages more production.
