Peas can be grown in pots too. You can sow 2-3 seeds in a 9” or 12” pot. Sow the seeds and keep in semi-shade till germination. Gradually expose to sunlight over a period of one week and then always keep in sunlight.
Harvesting is done in about 60 days after sowing. It should be done when the pods are well filled and tender. The pods should be kept in cool place as the heat deteriorates the pods very fast. Picking should done regularly as soon as pods became ready. It should be started at the bottom of plants giving slight by hands.
