Blue Goose

70 to 85 days — 'Blue Goose', also known as 'Gray Crowder', 'Gray Goose', and 'Taylor', is very prolific. Its plants will up two to three foot long runners, and under the right conditions, sometimes even longer. Pods will turn a straw color, often with a little purplish color when ripe. The peas are speckled with long pods, and are reportedly one of the most productive of all crowder-types.

In the South, farmers used to plant peas in with their corn so the vines would grow up the corn stalks making pea picking easier. Peas also helped to provide nitrogen for the corn. Green peas can be harvested at about 70 days or left on the vines and harvested in 80 to 85 days as dry peas.

Our seed is grown for us by David Pendergrass in Middle Tennessee who tells us, "My original stock of the 'Blue Goose' was from my grandparents. After my grandfather passed away, my grandmother gave me all the old seed they had stored in the freezer. The 'Blue Goose' peas had been stored in their freezer for over 28 years before I was able to plant and regenerate them. It had been a long time since I had tasted these good 'ol peas and so glad our family's stock was not lost."

'Blue Goose' is now very rare and quantities are limited. Each packet contains one-half ounce, which is approximately 50 seeds.
