Dandy', is a medium maturing, "cream pea" type variety with glossy, dark green colored leaves, white flowers, on semi-erect, bushy plants. Its pods are produced at foliage level in a bunching fashion making picking easy. The pod color at the green-shell stage is green and a light straw color at maturity, or the dry pea stage. The seeds are a non-crowder type, ovate to ovoid shaped and cream colored at both the immature and mature stage. It is prolific and thrives in hotter, Southern weather.

Planting Instructions: Loosen the soil in a location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight per day. Add compost or fertilizer before planting and not after.

Sow seeds directly outdoors as soon as soil temperatures reach 70F. Optimal germination occurs between 75 to 95F. Plant ½ to one inch deep, 1 to 2 seeds every two inches. Keep moist until germination. Thin to one plant every 3 to 6 inches in rows spaced 24 to 36 inches apart. Irrigation is normally not necessary as they are renowned for their ability to grow under harsh conditions. For improved germination of hard seed, soak in warm water for four hours just prior to sowing.
