Cool Season: Icicle Winter Pea***

Icicle pea is an extra small white flowered green pea that can be planted in the spring or fall. We have found that a lot of areas in the Upper Midwest have too harsh of winters for us to recommend planting it in the fall but testing is still being conducted. It’s an excellent fit for spring planting in a cover crop, wildlife or forage blend and has a late maturity. Its seed size is approximately 4,000 seeds/lb which makes it very economical per acre to plant.
