Flamingo Pink Peas in heart shape

Fall in Love with the Flamingo Pink Pea

Flamingo spring pea for spring 2021 planting

This Valentine’s Day, leading seed and grain specialist – Cope Seeds, is launching a new, high performing pink pea variety.

Flamingo not only presents an innovative product, with a strong consumer market demand, it’s a consistent high yielding pea with premium potential.

“The Flamingo spring pea is a pink pea that’s early to mature, with good standing ability. Its unique pink colour remains even after cooking, which presents great human consumption market potential,” says Gemma Clarke, Cope Seeds director.

Treated yield comparison data shows it to perform better than established market leader Prophet, with long straw and good standing ability.

Premium buy backs available on Flamingo

The Flamingo Pink Pea should be available commercially for spring planting 2021 with premium buy backs. For more information on Cope Seeds products, please visit our products page.
