They are a necessary source of nutrition especially in Uganda where they form a part of any starchy diet. They are a common sight in homemade soups and stews from Kampala to Karamoja. Some of the farmers in areas like Masaka, a major producing district, are turning from common beans to peas or sometimes inter cropping them to complement harvesting periods.

We harvest Uganda green peas when they are mature from the 58th or 74th day after planting onward. We pick the peas when the pods have attained around and bloated appearance. The seeds acquire a green or yellow appearance inside the pods depending on the cultivar. We make at least one picking each seven days until we have exhausted the harvest. Our trained workers pluck each pod by hand without threshing the peas. They repeat the process each three to five days to ensure that the rest have matured.
We pack Uganda green peas while they are still in their hulls in 6.8-kilo pea boxes. They are also available in the half bushel boxes. They also come in baskets with a capacity for 14 kilos worth of the produce. For every package, we feature film wrappings to conserve moisture and also inject top-ice for keeping them in a cool condition.
