Peas ‘N’ Pod Bernard
Peas 'N' Pod Bernard is a unique petite shelling pea from Pure Line Seeds. It has an afila vine meaning the vines stick together like velcro which will keep the plant upright and the pods off the ground. It can be grown in an 8-10” pot and it’s best to keep the spacing tight so that the vines can grow together as it matures. Bernard grows as a uniform hedge and produces beautiful white flowers at bloom. Bernard’s compact architecture allows it to be grown in a pot, raised bed, or small garden.
