The sugar pea 'Weggieser' is an annual, historical and old sugar pea variety from 1942 from Weggis, in the region of the lake of the 4 cantons in Switzerland. This almost forgotten tried and tested purple flowering variety is vigourous and forms many small, crisp and fresh pods. Immature pods are particularly tender and do not form a parchment layer, making them suitable for raw consumption. The taste of the flat pods is strong and resembles the well-known Kaiserschoten from childhood memories.

Sow peas directly in rows. 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, humosem, Calcareous, 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. Sugar peas are harvested when the small seeds are just beginning to develop. 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.
