Arcadia

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 -U.S. Protected Variety 

To be sold by variety name only as a class of certified seed.

Since Arcadia came on the scene a few years ago, producers have been excited with the tremendously high-yields that this green pea is capable of producing. It is substantially earlier than Matrix, so it maintains its performance advantage as we move west where Matrix’s productivity tails off. Arcadia does have good bleach tolerance and dark green cotyledons. Those characteristics make it a contender in the food grade market, where there are no sensitivities to small seed size. Adaptation is broad, and agronomics are average.
