Delikett is a very heavy cropping sugar (or 'snow') pea, which produces masses of stringless pods, which need virtually no preparation before use.
It is just the job for steaming and adding to a warm salad or for tossing into stir fry dishes.

How to Guide
Make a flat bottomed drill 15cm wide and water it well. Sow about ten seeds per 30cm, spacing them evenly in a zigzag manner. Cover with about 2cm of soil, and firm it down with the flat edge of a rake.
Allow about 60cm between rows. As seedlings emerge, the shoots are very attractive to birds, but a few little twigs placed over the row will give some protection. Very early spring sowings will benefit from cloche protection.
