  • Pea Information - morphological characteristics and associated genes

    Here is a selection of characteristics of different pea varieties and which genes are implicated in these characteristics from the John Innes Institute. There is also a column of seed cultivars in their seed collection that display these particular characteristic.

    Excellent link, it's an amazing amount of different characteristics. When I was little we grew white flowered short peas for shelling, not till much later did I realise there was an array of colours and sorts!

      Very true - I was very intrigued by the orange podded peas. It would be great if at one stage they did a photo gallery of all these characteristics. Couldn't find 'snap pod' though? Perhaps overlooked it.

        I missed the orange podded pea, it sounds wicked!
        I think it is a modified n, but will have to go and look cos memory is a little fuzzy about that.

          Well we didn't grow any when I was little. It was only much later when my mother discovered seeds of the Swiss mangetouts she knew from her childhood on a shopping trip to Zurich, that we both started growing them. It is difficult to remember now but Weggiser was probably the first pea I grew, followed by several of the tall peas in the Heritage Seed Library collection. I had Magnum Bonum from their 1994 seed library catalogue, a variety that is always great here.

            Yeah, snap pod is n, combined with p and v for edible pods.

            It took me a while searching through JIC site to find bip gene, but if I'd checked this page first it would have shown me straight away Doh!

              Yes, however I would have never found it, as if only says bip = bicolour. And since all pea flowers are, I assumed that this one must apply to all. The description does not say 'wings bicoloured'. Sometimes the JIC site is so difficult to 'grasp'. i am glad you spotted the bip gene that was there, well hidden in plain sight as far as my eyes were concerned .
