The premier ‘marrowfat’ variety ideal for making ever-popular mushy peas. Harvest the pods when fully dry and mature and the peas are hard and firm. Peas can also be soaked for stews and casseroles. Can also be eaten fresh when the pods are young – although the peas are less sweet then most garden varieties they do have a distinctive savoury taste. Plant 15cm (6”) apart in two rows with plants 5cm (2”) apart. Allow 60cm (24”) between further rows. Support plants with twiggy sticks or pea netting.
