Purple Podded Pea seeds please.
« on: February 17, 2017, 12:05:03 »
I wonder if anyone has a few seeds from any of the old tall, purple podded peas eg Carruthers, Beltony Blue, they can spare. (I already have some Robinson's Purple Podded)

I have self-saved Alderman and Super Sugarsnap (originally from the USA) to swap or quite a few varieties of squash, if you'd prefer.

If you are still looking for some tall purple podded peas I should have some to share. They may not be the freshest seed though. Are you just looking for shelling peas or snaps too?

Sorry I got side tracked!
I've both Carruther's Purple Podded and Clarke's Beltony Blue (although this is a few years old) you mention. Also Blauschokker and Stephen's. Let me know which you fancy and pm me your address.

The peas were put to chit on the 26th April and they started to show roots by the 30th :)

I've been putting them in small gutter lengths as they come through, the remaining few are now looking manky.
Results were good - all but 5 Carruther's and 8 Beltony Blues chitted, even though the seed was older of BB  :toothy10:

Hopefully most of them will now grow on and I can build up seed stock (as well as having some to eat as well - goes without saying!)
Thanks again Jayb
