Yellow pea plant

Posted by skootsi 8b (My Page) on

Some of my sugar snap pea plants (Super Sugar Snap and Cascadia) are turning yellow. About 15%, here and there. The new leaves are affected, and also the stems that support those leaves. It's the whole leaf, not just the veins or between the veins.

I've ruled out over-watering and under-watering, as I have sandy soil and monitor soil moisture. I doubt there are nutrient issues, so I suspect cold nights (low thirties). Hopefully it's not some incurable disease. The plants are about seven inches tall (planted late).

I'm in inland Southern California. Has anyone encountered this problem?

I've had every possible pea problem--I would check for spots...that's a sign of the mosaic virus.

Are you supporting those peas somehow?

check out my link, it leads to my video garden blog--i have two episodes on peas that are about 2 minutes each.

RE: Yellow pea plant


It was apparently cold temperatures that caused it. The peas are now loaded with fat, juicy pods.
