Fearing Burr, in Field and Garden Vegetables of America, 1863, wrote that the Champion of England Pea originated in England by William Fairbeard in 1843; and observed: “It is … one of the most valuable acquisitions which have been obtained for many years, being remarkably tender and sugary, and in all respects, of first rate excellence.”

This is a tall (5'-10') climbing, wrinkle-seeded pea, producing heavy crops, with 8-10 peas per pod. Garden or English peas enjoy cool, moist conditions, and should be planted 2"-3" apart in sunny, fertile garden loam 4-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Monticello gardeners sow them ˝"-1" deep in rows 24" apart, and support the twining vines with tall branches, or “pea sticks.”

Approximately 15-20 seeds per packet.
