The Capuchin Pea 'Blauwschokker' is an ancient, annual and robust variety of peas from Europe. The high-yielding plants bloom purple ones and form thick blue pods 5-12 cm long, with pale green cores. The full-bodied taste of the aromatic and very sweet variety is distinctive. In this garden pea species, young pods are consumed whole and mature raw or cooked. A trellis for climbing is required.

Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
Sow directly into the open from January to April and in autumn from September to November.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow directly into the frost-free open air from March to July.

Sow peas directly in rows. The optimal sowing time is on average from 5 to 10 ° C, but can also be sown at warmer temperatures. From a plant height of 10 cm, we recommend piling the plants with soil so that they thrive optimally. We recommend a framework for guiding the pea shoots up, which improves the yield and quality.
Pea prefers a sunny and open location with sufficient water and nutrient-poor, calcareous, humus, loosened and deep soil. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Since the soil is supplied with nitrogen through the roots, they should only be cut off after harvest and left in the soil. Due to the nitrogen excretions on the roots of the peas, planting in mixed culture promotes surrounding plants. In capuchin peas, the young pods and mature seeds are harvested. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
A deeply loosened Beet is sufficient.

Germination ability of seeds: 3-4 years
