Dwarf shelling pea
An heirloom described by Seed Savers Exchange: "A large-podded dwarf pea of good quality and yield. Introduced in England by Taber and Cullen circa 1890; W. Atlee Burpee introduced it in America in 1904. Probably a selection from American Wonder. Short vines grow 3' tall and require trellising. Shell, 50-55 days."
Plant your peas as soon as the soil can be worked. The grow vines when the weather is cool and flower when it warms up. This would also be a great variety for a fall pea crop as it only takes 50-55 days to harvest peas.
