Asparagus pea seeds available from various agents of Ericavale Aust. 07 5497 0266 . Various growers had problems but others in Melbourne found very vigorous

I managed to get a packet of seeds from Yilgarn Traders in Geraldton WA a few years ago, the plants grew but not successfully. Supposedly able to grow here, but maybe getting only 60% annual rainfall for a few years and hotter than normal temperatures made the difference. Moving to Donnybrook WA in next few years, hopefully the pea will take to cooler climate.

These seeds are available through Green Harvest Organic Gardening. If you look them up on the net, you will find them. They are an Australian company. Kind Regards, Lesley.

It is a winter crop in its native environment. In dry Mediterranean climates it should be planted in autumn for a spring harvest. Grew well like this for me.
