F55 has been released by Pure Line Seeds in 2013. It is a whole bean for the processing market. This bean has done exceptionally well in a number of trials and semi-commercial trials across the country.
The long pointed pods of PLS 560 fill to the tip with 10-12 dark green berries of excellent flavor. These nice, light green pods really stand out against the dark blue-green foliage. A strong-stemmed variety – it holds upright throughout the season, making harvest quick and very rewarding.
Don’t be fooled by this smaller berried pea- yields will astound you! This variety has consistently been a top yielding variety across the country since its release. The ever-increasing importance of 167’s strong field tolerance to downy mildew keeps this variety in high demand. Harvest early for an even smaller berry.
Second Early Variety
M14 is a strong stemmed normal vine that will stay standing through green pea harvest. This variety also makes for a picturesque field with so many bright green pods hanging on that classic Dick Lowe style dark blue vine.
This is a new 4 sieve bean that produces medium green pods on a very healthy plant with resistance to BCMV, Anthracnose, and Halo Blight. This variety has shown great potential in the fresh market.
