High yielding large blue pea with exceptional straw strength and early maturity

  • Strong disease package with very stiff straw
  • Highly consistent over all regions
  • Exceptional colour retention to maximise premiums



Mankato is the first large blue pea to hit the market from KWS Momonts highly successful pulse breeding programme. A very high yielding variety nationally over a range of soil types; Mankato has a strong disease portfolio including resistance to pea wilt, coupled with its exceptional straw strength and medium height it proves the next step up from older competitor varieties. In the last three years we have seen Mankato demonstrate fantastic colour retention compared to other large blue varieties, leading to higher premiums paid at the farm gate. In short Mankato ticks all the boxes for UK pea growers and end users alike.
