Here is the Little Marvel Pea, Pisum sativum. This is a mid to late season type pea and is a heavy producer. They are prolific and bushy plants that only grow to 24 to 36 inches tall with pods about 3.5 inches long. This old heirloom variety was first introduced in the early 1900s by Sutton and Sons of Reading, England. It is more or less a determinate type so once they put out all their pods the plant will die off. This variety is good for freah eating with the pod when young. We found them to make a great pea soup but also good in stir fry. Open pollinated 55 to 61 days from sprouting.

    Planting and Harvesting Tips:
    Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
    Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.


    Green Thumb Tip
    Sow seeds outdoors when the soil has warmed. Tolerant of heat and drought, but not of cold. Keep well picked for higher yields.DIRECT SEED 2" ApartSEED DEPTH 1/2"THIN 6-8" Apart LIGHT Full Sun
