Here is the Marrowfat Pea, Pisum sativum. The name 'marrowfat' was coined around 1730 from marrow and fat. They are green mature peas that have been allowed to dry out naturally in the field, rather than having been harvested whilst still young like the normal garden pea. This particular variety of pea is plump and bigger then most other peas hence the name "fat". This is also very popular as a micro green and eaten young. Pods can get to 6 inches long and fat. Plants get to around 4 feet tall with lots of pods on them. They are used to make mushy peas and also the snack food wasabi peas. Open pollinated 60-70 days.
