This old heirloom shelling pea dates back to 1880. It’s a versatile, tasty, reliable pea that grows well in cool soil, so it’s great for the north, and has good potential for spring and fall plantings. The short vines grow to only 90cm (36), but benefit from some twigs stuck in the soil for support – or a low trellis net. Once known as ‘Earliest of All,’ Alaska pea matures in just 55 days, making it our earliest pea of all. Expect heavy yields of round, straight, pale green pods, each containing five to eight smooth peas. For drying as soup peas, let the plants mature to 80 days.
Matures in 55 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
