DESCRIPTION

Popular for many years! Extra large, tender 4-5"L pods are delectably sweet, crisp, juicy and contains 8- 10 peas. Remain stringless and sweeter longer than most others. Heavy yielding 5-6'H vines require trellising for support. Bear over an extended period. Pick before the peas inside begin to swell. Showy white flowers add a splash of brightness to your edible landscape! Can be used like snap beans. Tasty in stir-fries and salads. Considered a commercial variety.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

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.

HEIRLOOM

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.
