(60 to 70 days) This heirloom snow pea variety dates back to the 1770’s. It was commercially released in 1892 by D. M. Ferry and Company. The plants are bushy with eighteen to twenty four inch vines that do not typically require staking. That said, some support is beneficial as it keeps the developing pods off the ground and makes picking easier. The plants have attractive, bicolored edible lavender flowers and are prolific producers of tender, crunchy, sweet stringless pods. Stir-fry or add to soup. Young pods can be eaten raw or used in salad.
