Tom Thumb Garden Pea

50-55 days. Tom Thumb is absolutely the best pea variety for container planting! Reaching only 8 to 9 inches in height, it’s grown mainly as a shelling type, but the pods are also sweet, tender and delicious when harvested very young. This variety excels when tucked into small spaces around the garden, and for cold frame production very early or very late in the season. This unusual heirloom originated in England and was first introduced in the US by Landreth Seeds, Philadelphia, in 1854. Even more frost tolerant than most other pea varieties, and, naturally, it requires no staking!

What are the pros? Really cute

What are the cons? Not enough peas to eat

Review:

I'm a balcony vegetable gardener so I'm always on the lookout for hybrids that will provide high yields in small space. I was really excited for these peas! They were a bit slow to start - I planted three seeds, and I was almost ready to start something else in that pot, but one by one, they came up. After that, really easy care and they started flowering and producing pods really quickly. And they really are super cute plants. The peas taste good, but they just don't produce enough for more than garden snacking. I'm going to switch to a small, bush style pea variety, instead of this tiny dwarf. I do think this would make great spring ground cover!

What are the pros? Germination, large yummy pods

What are the cons? Don't do well indoors

Review:

At first I tried to grow a couple of these indoors and they didn't do very well. A plant would produce 2-3 tiny pods with 1-2 peas inside and then it would dry up and die. Then I planted a bunch in my garden, and the plants few to be much better. The plants are compact, but they had beautiful large leaves and the pods were quite large for a small plant, with 4-5 peas per pod! Will definitely order more next year!

What are the cons? Not very productive

Review:

Yield is very low, this is for snacking - planted 8 plants, three in the ground and 5 in pots and barely had a handful of pods.

What are the pros? cute plant, great for kids

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have very little space with which to garden on a small balcony with limited light. That said, These grew great. I had several inside in a pot and they did just "ok" very little peas and these were done fast. But then I had a plant die outside on the balcony and though why not plant a few of these in a small 3x9x6 container and they did FANTASTIC. had several coming off for weeks, just a pretty little plant and not enough to cook with but nice to go out and snack on while you are tending to the other plants. I planted all summer long and always had 100% germination rate, mostly I had sprouts within 2-4 days when I started the seeds inside.
