Pigeon Pea seeds

Pack: 10 seeds, 10g, 25g, 100g, 250g, 1kg

It is also known as pigeon pea, red gram, tur, pwa kongo in Haiti, or as gungo peas in Jamaica; it is a perennial legume from the family Fabaceae. 

Since its domestication in the Indian subcontinent at least 3,500 years ago, its seeds have become common in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. 

It is consumed on a vast scale in South Asia and is a major source of protein for the population of the Indian subcontinent. It is the primary accompaniment to rice or roti (flatbread) and has a staple diet throughout the length and breadth of India. 

This Pigeon Pea is an Open Pollinated variety. The plant produces high yields of flavorful pigeon peas. Pigeon Peas can be served like green peas or cowpeas, combining them with other vegetables. Most pigeon peas are harvested in the dry stage and marketed as dried peas. This variety will succeed under hot growing conditions. 

Pigeon peas are remarkably drought-resistant, tolerating dry areas. An excellent choice for home gardens and market growers. A variety from India. 

Care & Growing Instructions: Prefer to sow directly after frost in Spring and Summer. This is a heat-loving plant that will not tolerate cold nights during germination. Germination temperature is between 25°C and 28°C (germination period: 14-21 days); therefore, using a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended if you live in a cold or temperate climate zone. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more.  Soak seeds overnight in water before sowing and sow 25mm deep, 30cm apart - Harvest in 90-120 days

Happy customer

I Recommend strongly

Great service, thank you.

Happy Valley Seeds give a reliable and valuable service.
It's too cold to plant the Pigeon Pea seeds at the moment, but I'm sure they will be good.

Sandra Kennedy
pigeon pea

too early to write a review but I got them fast as last year they were not available when I wanted them. An amazing plant and if it grows the way it should it will be a blessing for me and my chooks. If you want them grab them now, as they don't last long with people buying them due to the poultry feed hike in costs due to shortage of food/grains. You will love them, so will your chooks or what evers.

Alison Lewis
pigeon pea seeds and postage

Thank you for my order. For some reason only half of the seeds germinated. Really not sure why. Also I received a ‘postage owed’ sticker on the packet from Australia Post with my order. I sent a messenger message that day but haven’t heard anything back from Happy Valley. Thank you.
