A very good soup or split pea that is quite late maturing. Very tall vines need support. EXTREMELY RARE.

Heirloom Dutch

A very old heirloom pea brought to Canada from Holland in the late 1800's. I received the seed of this heirloom at a Brandon Seedy Saturday. The lady who gave it to me said that it has been in her family for generations. It is a very early and productive bush pea with small flat pods that can be used in stir fries or eating fresh. Similar to Dwarf Gray Sugar Pea but the plants are slightly smaller growing and even more productive.
