Bush Peas will be ready for harvest when the pod reaches the mature length and the pods are plump but not bursting. The length of the pea pod varies depending on the variety.

Harvest Bush Peas every 2-4 days to encourage continued production. Harvest your Bush Peas by snapping the vine connectors away which hold the pea pods to the vine.
