About

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 two years we have seen Mankato demonstrate fantastic colour retention compared to other large blue varieties, leading to higher premiums paid at the farm gate.
