Originally developed by the Kenney Seed Co. in 1893, and then introduced to the public in 1903. These peas are extra sweet when harvested while still young and tender and will produce an abundance of fruits. A uniform bush type, plants will grow to 20-24″ high and only need a little support to keep them off the ground. These peas seldom make it into the house as harvesters can’t resist to shell and eat them on the spot.
Sow seeds 3/4″ deep in early spring, in full sun, when ground is workable and heavy frosts have past, as peas prefer cooler temperatures. Plants will benefit from adding compost to soil. Support with trellis or bamboo poles to climb to keep peas off ground and for more sun.
