PBN Pea Sugar 'Snow Dwarf Grey'

Dwarf Grey Sugar snow pea seeds produce the earliest and most dwarf edible pods of all. They are prolific, bushy plants that only grow to 60-75cm (24-30") tall, and don't even require staking. Very attractive sweet pea-like flowers are followed by clusters of flat, fleshy, curved, semi-pointed pods. These are light green and average 6-8cm (2.5-3"), appearing at the tops of the plants for easy picking.

This old heirloom variety was listed once as Dwarf Gray Sugar Cabbage Pea, and has been in production since before 1773. Dwarf Grey Sugar snow pea seeds were first sold commercially in 1892 by D.M Ferry and Company. 66 days
