Soup Pea - Calvert (Pole)
We sourced this dual-purpose pea from Salt Spring Seeds, whose description reads: “this very fine climbing edible-pod pea is of French origin. Awesome large 4-5" long pods, tender from beginning to end of season. The dried pea has a great beany flavor when cooked.” Grows to about 6 feet and requires a trellis. Grown organically but not certified.
Soup Pea - Darlaine Bush
Self-supporting bush variety that makes a fine yellow soup pea. Yields about a pound of peas per ten square feet. Creamy/tan round seed. Good cover crop pea. This is the pea to get if you want to make split pea soup, as it cooks up into a smooth, creamy texture. Grown organically but not certified.
Soup Pea - St. Hubert's (Bush) (Certified Organic)
A productive green soup pea. Will benefit from some support as it can grow up to 5 feet; we didn't bother and still had a good harvest. St. Hubert's is an heirloom, introduced to the St. Lawrence Valley in SE Canada by French settlers in the 1700s
