Deliciously sweet. Introduced in 1898 by Thomas Laxton Any pea that was introduced over 100 years ago and is still widely grown should tell you volumes. Reliable, consistent, and sweet are just some of the words used to describe this pea. Tasty bright green peas, excellent quality, and high in sugar content. Pods grow to about 3-4 1/2 inches containing six to eight peas. Vigorous 3' foot vines are perfect for fences or arbors. A performer in cool coastal conditions and it is wilt resistant. Instead of building a trellis this year for your peas which cost money and uses valuable resources, try planting Cayuse oats instead as a trellis. This will not only produce oats and build biomass in your garden, but it will give your peas something to climb on. Cayuse grows 6' tall and will make an excellent living trellis. Almost like the Indians using corn as a trellis for beans!
