Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - An historic variety originally introduced in the 1840s, this heirloom strain is from the family of Robert Woodbridge brought to SSE by Ben Gabel and Kate McEvoy. Robert’s grandmother got the seed “from the head gardener at a big country house during the war” and grew it in her garden in the village of Pickworth, Lincolnshire, England. A traditional tall pea that reaches heights of 10 feet—a great return for a small space. Eight to ten peas per pod. Shell, 60-75 days. ±2,000 seeds/lb. 

Characteristics: 

  • Vines grow to 10 feet
  • Each pod has 8-10 seeds
  • Shelling pea
  • 60-75 days
  • 75 Seeds per packet

Instructions - Peas thrive in cool weather. Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Double rows of peas can be planted on each side of a trellis.
