Maple Peas

Maple Peas are a very specialised and niche pea, specific to two end users; one is pigeon feed, the other is export to the far-east for inclusion in fruit salads.

Yields of maple peas are considerably lower than other types and therefore the cost and premium of growing maple peas is much higher.

Maple peas can be spotted very easily during the growing season as the flowers of the crop are pigmented (purple) whereas the majority of other varieties are white flowered.
