60 days. Vigorous bush plants, heavy yields and fine-flavored peas. A great home garden variety. An heirloom from 1908.

What are the pros? Virtually maintenance free

What are the cons? None

Review:

Although these are more of a vine and not a bush, these are great plants that produce a moderate amount of pods and are virtually maintenance free. Plant them, put in some sticks or a trellis and let them grow. They tend to grow very slowly at first then rocket up and start flowering within a month or so. I'm growing these in a raised bed and I was able to get two crops of these this year. The peas themselves are tasty, freeze well, and are easy to cook. The majority of the pods have 4 or 5 peas inside them but I have found some with 8. These are a great choice If you don't have a lot of space.

What are the pros? Lots of delicious peas

What are the cons? Benefitted from Staking

Review:

These peas were really a marvel. They went into the ground later than they should have, germinated fairly well, then produced WELL into July. I ended up pulling them all out in July because the Mexican Bean Beetles were getting to them. The peas barely seemed to notice, but I'm in a community garden so they had to go. They really would benefit from staking just for more airflow, ease of harvesting, and to keep pests off them. 10/10 will plant again.

What are the pros? Good Germination Rate

What are the cons? Growing Problems

Review:

While pretty much every seed I planted germinated, the quality of pea pod was just okay. Had issues with plants breaking off, curling in on themselves and not wanting to climb. Part of the issue was trying to get them to climb at an angle instead of straight up. Once I adjusted my netting, they did a little better, but the peas were pretty tough and not the greatest flavor regardless. Ended up just letting them dry out early and pulled them. Probably will try another variety next year.

What are the pros? delicious

What are the cons? Not a bush

Review:

Delicious peas, but they definitely needed a trellis to climb and did not bush out at all. I would grow again, but I would plan better.

What are the pros? Dependable, low maintenace

What are the cons? none

Review:

By far, the best pea that I have tried over many years in the northern Sacramento Valley. Plant them in Oct., first flowers in December and picking by February. Can be used as edible pod or shell pea (my favorite use). Nothing little about this reliable and robust producer. Plan to use a support system, but once they get going, the winter rains will take care of the rest of the needs for this green, sweet gem.
