Saving Pea Seed.
« on: June 22, 2017, 16:47 »
Please could some-one, (DD. :D). tell me the correct way to collect, save and store peas from this years crop in order to use them as seed next year.
Do I - Leave them in the pods and on the plant as long as possible, or
Do I - Pick them at the same time as I pick the ones for eating, but leave them in the pods, or ,
Do I - De-pod them and dry them, (in the sun?), or,
Do I - Do something else? :unsure:
Thank you, arh.

Option 1 is correct ;)

Same as runner beans, wait until they're crisp and easy to pop out of the pods!

We haven't bought these seeds for years now!

(Mind you, we had some very small pea pods of some obscure variety, which were a bind to open even when ripe for noshing, so we eventually spent a pleasant half-hour chucking the tiddly seed pods and concentrated on keeping the bigger chaps)!

Thank you Growster, I will remember that, but my runner beans have been so poor this year that I don't think that I'll bother saving the seeds from them, though it may have been the dry weather that was at fault.
