Heirloom variety dating back to 1877 produces a bounty of tender 3" pods set on compact 24" vines. Gorgeous, purple flowers give rise to amazingly sweet, stringless pods that can be eaten whole, either fresh or steamed. Vines do not require trellising, but doing so will aid in the abundant harvest.
Peas prefer cool weather. As soon as soil can be worked, plant seeds 2" apart, 1" deep in rows 18" apart. Seeds germinate in 7-10 days. Plants do not require trellising, although doing so will make for easier harvesting.
66 days to harvest.
