36”H erect bush with a concentrated pod set. 5-7”L pods are bunched slightly above foliage level and contain 13-16 peas per pod. Delicious peas are small to medium, cream colored and NOT crowded in the pod. Easily picked and shelled. White flower. Suitable for canning or freeing.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
