The winner of the ‘Large Blue Peas’ category was D&R Tyrrell with the variety Daytona which was supplied by Dunns.

 

Roydon Hall Farms won the ‘Winter Beans’ with the variety Wizard supplied by Dalmark - who also supplied the variety Rose to LG Wakefield & Sons, winners of the ‘Any Other Pea’ category.

 

The ‘White/Yellow Peas’ winning growers were Bevington Smith & Partners with the variety Gregor, supplied by Dengie Crops.

 

Franek Smith, vice-president of the British Edible Pulses Association (BEPA) said there had been a 33 per cent increase in samples submitted for judging this year.

 

Mr Smith said: “This was driven by the increased area in the pulse crop in 2015.

 

“We expect this increase to be maintained in 2016, which will be a very special year for the pulse crop as the UN International Year of Pulses.”
