If snap pea pollen dies in high heat, worth keeping in summer?

wild_foragerJune 10, 2008

If snap pea pollen is killed at temps above 86 F, is it worth keeping the plants going in summer, assuming they survive disease and whatnot? Many of my pods coming in now (thanks to this heat wave) are misshapen and unevenly bulging due to pollen loss.

It has been my experience that the vine will begin to brown at the bottom in the hot weather and eventually die. If you want another round of peas I suggest a fall crop.

This is certainly worth a read. Lots of water in the heat and fruiting and I keep wet newspaper mulch. to keep the soil cooler.
