Description

Offered in 1881 by D. M. Ferry & Co. of Detroit, Michigan, and called in their catalog "“the most desirable of all the edible pod peas".  The Dwarf Gray Sugar Pea lives up to its name: the edible, stringless, 3-4" pods are sweet and the prolific, 24-30" vines do not typically require staking.  In addition, the bicolored flowers of purple and pinkish-white add an ornamental element to the vegetable garden.

This edible podded 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.
