Austrian Winter Peas

Austrian Winter Peas are a great cool season legume crop. They are similar to English peas except with longer vines and can be planted in food plots with clovers such as Armadillo Burr Medic, White Clover and the Annual ryegrass to establish a feeding ground. During the winter months when many feeds are gone, Austrian Winter Peas will continue to provide high quality feed for wildlife. Austrian peas attract deer and turkey and provide high quality forage during the cooler season.
