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

What are the pros? Good yields & taste

What are the cons? ???

Review:

I planted these along with Lincoln and found them comparable in yield and taste even though these are smaller plants. I grew them in ‘blocks’ close together. They held each other up and off the ground. Easy to pick & shell. Handled uneven watering well.

Review:

I'm an amateur gardener and have had huge success with these. Jacksonville has had weird weather (cold, hot, then cold again, windy.. you name it) and these have flourished throughout. I started them indoors and transplanted them carefully when the weather was cool (around 50 degrees). I have them growing up a 5 ft. trellis, but they're about 3 feet at the moment. I have plenty of peas already and more to come! I tried my first one today and they are very sweet and great to eat off the vine. I'll definitely be growing more of these in the future.

What are the pros? Easy & productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'd like to correct my previous post - when I plant the double row, the rows are only 6 INCHES apart, not 6'. Typo! Also, I plant fairly thickly. I used to use a tape measure and plant 1 seed per inch but found that it provided better production if I just dropped the seeds in a regular manner in the row approximately 1/2" apart or 2 seeds every 1". No seed gets a 100% germination rate and planting more thickly gives a better chance of a nice crop of plants. Using a multipurpose fertilizer like Osmocote also seems to make a major difference. I just scatter the Osmocote over the soil after I've dug the first row. Then I plant that row, dig the second 6" away, plant the second row & cover. This works the Osmocote in nicely.

Review:

I have grown these peas my entire life, and I am now retired on my family's heritage farm and still growing them. I learned over the past several seasons (one can always learn & improve!) that these peas are pretty forgiving. My practice is to plant them in a double row (2 rows side by side not more than 6' apart) so they provide support to each other, mulch them well with lawn clippings and to fertilize once when I plant with Osmocote. Support is essential for airflow & ease of maintenance & harvest so I use corn tunnels (heavy wire things that are about 18" wide and 2' long). I set them over the double row & because they are open, they provide excellent support for both the plants & for me when I have to reach to grab a particularly elusive pod. Using these techniques, my Little Marvels usually grow straight up through the corn tunnels and reach 4' high! I get plenty of tasty, tender peas for eating & freezing with two 40' double rows. Recommend highly.

What are the pros? Easy, Early.

What are the cons? Very small plants.

Review:

Came up quickly in late spring. Kids loved picking and eating straight from the plant. Plants were very small but did need support. Didn't get many peas. Should have grown more plants. Was my first time with peas. They didn't need as much space in between as I gave. Next time I will plant about 2 inches apart.
