Pot Size

This tropical legume is famous and loved in Caribbean cuisine and beyond. Pigeon pea is grown widely throughout the tropics and subtropics as a perennial evergreen and nitrogen fixer that provides protein rich peas. 

Pigeon Pea is a hardy and versatile tree/shrub that can grow in a wide range of low fertility soils and soil textures and will reach about 6ft tall, 3ft wide. Pollinators love the very attractive bright yellow-orange unique pea flowers. 

Peas are super nutritious and full of protein! They have a nutty taste/texture and can be harvested 5-8 months after planting. Pigeon pea improves soil content and soil structure, is ideal for 'chop and drop' mulching, and when planted close together quickly forms a thick hedge or living wall for a perfect natural windbreak.  Pigeon Pea is one of our favorite fast growing, drought resistant, extremely versatile permaculture plant.

    Pigeon pea plant

    Received two and half weeks ago, was well packed and fresh. I followed all the instructions for planting outdoors and she is doing well. Looks super perky. Can't wait till she matures.
