Blueman Green Pea

Blueman Green Pea is a green cotyledon, semi leafless line developed in France in 2007. It was trialled in Canada in 2014 and selected based on its resistance to powdery mildew and other agronomic characteristics.

 

Main Strengths:



  • Yield in both years of testing was greater than the check varieties
  • Very good standability/lodging resistance & good colour retention
  • Small seed size
  • Resistant to Powdery Mildew

Cotyledon color: Y=yellow, G=green
Yield: % of yellow = percent yield of the average yield of yellow checks; % of green = percent yield of the average yield of green checks;
DTM = Days to maturity; VLTH = Vine length (cm); PHL = Pre-harvest lodging score (1=upright, 9=flat);
Shape: 1=round, 5=blocky; Bleaching: CDC Limerick = 3, 1=less bleached and 5=more bleached than CDC Limerick
GCI = Green color intensity (CDC Limerick = 3.0, 1=more intense than CDC Limerick and 5=less intense than CDC Limerick)
