Tom Thumb Garden Pea
55 days. Tom Thumb is absolutely the best pea variety for container planting! Reaching only 8 to 9 inches in height, it's grown mainly as a shelling type, but the pods are also sweet, tender and delicious when harvested very young. This variety excels when tucked into small spaces around the garden, and for cold frame production very early or very late in the season. This unusual heirloom originated in England, was first introduced in Philadelphia, in 1854. Even more frost tolerant than most other pea varieties, and it requires no staking!
Contains 20 heirloom seeds
First time growing peas. Needed container size plants. These were wonderful. I grew only 12 plants, 6 in each 5gallon grow bag.I was picking pea pods i think in the first month!!! I was picking them everyday until the weather here proved to be too hot. I did not shell them, We ate the whole pod. Will definitely grow these again next year.
