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 are
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.
