Bred as an improvement to the popular ‘Onward’ pea variety, this excellent maincrop type produces high yields of juicy, plump marrowfat peas, each pod containing up to 9 dark green peas.
The plants’ compact and robust habit makes them ideal for exposed locations and smaller gardens. They show good resistance to powdery mildew, which is helpful for later sowings for successional cropping through a long season.
A worthy recipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, ‘Ambassador’ is a dependable variety that is easy to grow and a long-time favourite of vegetable growers. It is also a great choice for introducing children to gardening as the peas are so good to eat raw when picked straight from the plant.
Not only tasty, these succulent peas are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and fibre, having particularly high levels of vitamin C. When frozen, the peas will retain good nutritional values.
