Has anybody grown White Acre Peas? I'm assuming cultivation is the same as for other Southern peas, but just thought I'd ask. I'm also going to post in the Heirloom forum. I'm going out to plant them right now.
Gerri, glad to see sun again after four days of Fay
No different than any other southern pea. Little more tedious for shelling out green shellies but that is about it. Don't know how they will do with short daylight. Grow them in the summertime up here. A leading commercial cultivar for canning in this area, until NAFTA.
I would gladly drive all the wa to Ga, and shell those peas just to get my hands on them. YUM. I just pulled mine down, they were growing and blooming, but no peas. Days getting shorter, I needed the room for some fall crops
gardenglory, I guess it's really true that S.R. 40 is the dividing line. I was lucky enough to pull in a small crop (small garden) in late fall, but my late fall temps are in the 80s with lots of daylight -- even though I'm only about 2 hours south of you. Yes, those peas are truly YUM. I'll post a pic when I get on the computer that has the photo files.
