The wild pea is one of the oldest cultivated plants in Europe. In the eastern Mediterranean (what today is Turkey and Greece) wild peas were collected and eaten many thousand years ago, probably because of their relatively large seeds. Possibly they
were also rather popular because - in contrast to many other legumes - their pods can be eaten raw and must not be detoxified by cooking.

The first cultivation probably took place in the Stone Age. Still today, selections of the wild peas are cultivated, for example in southern Italy. It also grow wild among arable crops in the Mediterranean region. The grains have a brown-marbled surface and an aromatic taste.

Direct sowing is possible from the beginning of April at temperatures of + 5-8 °C with a sowing depth of 3 cm . Row spacing 35 cm. Follow-up sowing is possible until June. Peas require a very good and nutritious soil and a sunny location. When planting in dry conditions water the rows 2-3 times before planting. For a better stability you can earth up the plants after approx. 14 days and place some sticks along the rows as a climbing aid. Harvest after about 75 days, when the pods have grown large enough but are still tender.
