Pea Evaluation

by Lars.

We are evaluating eleven different types of peas from the Nordic Genetic Research Center. These are the shoots, not among the most delicious, but then again they were chosen for the actual peas, rather than the flowers or leaves. The production is complicated be how old some of these varieties are. Some of the cultivars are barely domesticated, and tend to reach maturity over a wide range of time within each species. Weather-wise it has also been a hard growing season, and unfortunately we are counting the yield in grams rather than kilos for some varieties. But we are anxiously waiting delivery, and will asses the cultivars.
