It has a maturity of 96 d, seed size of 226 g, and good lodging resistance. AAC Carver is resistant to powdery mildew (caused by Erysiphe pisi DC.), and moderately susceptible to mycosphaerella blight [caused by Mycosphaerella pinodes (Berk. & Bloxam.) Vestergr.] and fusarium wilt [caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. pisi (Linford) Snyd. & Hans.]. AAC Carver is adapted to all field growing regions in western Canada.
