Question: My southern peas are producing nothing but stems and leaves, that is, no fruit at all. What causes that?
Answer: Southern peas are quite sensitive to nitrogen levels in the soil. When soils are too fertile, the plants will grow luxuriantly, but they won’t flower and fruit. Think back to your feeding program. If nitrogen has been included, don’t do it again anytime soon. Be certain, too, that your plants are in full sunlight. Southern peas won’t produce well in shady conditions.
