The Q&A Archives: Harvesting Burpee Petit Pois

Question: I'm trying to grow peas for the first time this year, and my question is pretty basic: how large should I let Burpee's Petit Pois pea pods get before I harvest them? The packet says they're supposed to be tiny sweet peas, but doesn't give any further info. Do I wait for them to swell a bit more or pick them when they're still pretty flat in the pod? Thanks. Mike Athens, GA

Answer: The Burpee Petit Pois peas are ready to harvest when the pods are well-filled out but before they have begun to harden and lighten in color. It's a good idea to check the plants daily.
