Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
As the name indicates, Tom Thumb Pea is small in stature, reaching only 8” – 10” tall. Grown in the United States since the mid-19th century, this pea does not require staking and is perfect for container gardening. Fearing Burr, in Field and Garden Vegetables of America (1863), wrote that the Tom Thumb Pea “is early, of good quality, and, the height of the plant considered, yields abundantly.”

This English, or shelling, pea prefers cool, moist conditions. Direct sow the seeds in fertile garden loam or in a container 4-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Approximately 15-20 seeds per packet.
