This Valentine’s Day, leading seed and grain specialist - Cope Seeds, is launching a new, high

performing pink pea variety.



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



“The Panther 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.



The Pink Panther Pea should be available commercially for spring planting 2021 with premium buy backs. For more information on Cope Seeds products, please visit www.copeseeds.co.uk.
