Windham is recognized as having improved winter hardiness over Austrian-type winter peas. Windham has a dwarf growth habit and an upright canopy. Windham is a white flowering tannin-free pea, making it sweeter than Austrian-type peas. Wildlife and foraging animals prefer these sweeter peas over purple flowering varieties. Windham was developed in the Northwest as a joint venture between the USDA_ARS and three universities in Idaho, Washington, and Montana.
Seeding rate: Winter Peas can be seeded at a rate of 30-100 lbs/acre depending on the mix or purpose. For best results, plant in the fall when adequate moisture is available. Ideal seeding depth is 1/2-1 inch and optimal pH range is 6-7.5.
