Asparagus Pea

Leave a comment

This is a record of how long this particular set of seeds took to germinate and how they looked at various stages from first appearance to the development of the first set of true leaves and beyond. I hope this will prove useful.
 

Variety: Asparagus Pea
Sown direct: 2nd April 2018
First Seedling: 8th April 2018
Germination: 6 days
Germination ratio: 2/10

This is a new variety for Mudville and I was really quite surprised to see that the newly emerging seedlings look nothing like the peas/mangetout that we usually grow. It’s quite exciting to have a new vegetable to watch and monitor, especially for Middle Mudlet as this was one of her choices.

The development of this plant continues to surprise me with its’ first true leaves looking absolutely nothing like a traditional pea. I’ve also noticed that these plants tend to close up on themselves on a night time.

This plant may be small in stature (approx 30cm tall) but has a impactful deep red flower.

The first of the Asparagus Pea pods have started to grow and they look weird!
