60 days. The pods are plump, fleshy and very tender when harvested young. In 1856, the Comstock, Ferre and Co catalog said: “About 3 feet high, and of very strong growth. Pods, long, and slightly curved. Containing mostly seven peas, which show in relief along the pods. They are usually cooked in the pods like snap beans. Of excellent quality, but rather late, and only a moderate bearer.” This variety produces 2 to 3 inch pods as well as a bonus of delicious green foliage and lavender red flowers that are pretty and tasty in salads.

What are the pros? beautiful vines and blooms
What are the cons? pods even young ones are tough
This is an old variety I won't plant again. The vines were beautiful. But the pods are tough to eat raw and also tough when cooked even with the string removed. I tried them very young (with no peas inside yet) and later as sugar snap peas with the peas inside them.
