Would recommend this to anyone fun to grow



Germinated directly in soil. Sweet and delicious peas.



Amazing peas. The best pea harvest I've ever had.

Great production & taste


Great variety; had excellent production last year & am ordering again this year. We froze some & the taste is far superior to store-bought frozen peas. Delicious fresh as well.
