    Shelling Pea, Carruthers’ Purple Podded (Organic)


    Pisum sativum. Purple Pod Shelling. 4-6′ tall vines, pink and purple flowers. Not an edible-pod type pea but the purple pods contain sweet, tasty green peas for fresh shelling or freezing.

    Shelling Pea, Clarke’s Beltony Blue (Organic)


    Pisum sativum. Purple Pod Shelling. Another purple-podded pea from Northern Ireland. This one is from County Tyrone and has been grown on the same farm there since at least 1850.

    Pisum sativum. Green Snow. 60 days. We were tired of short, bushy snow peas, so when we found this beauty from Peace Seeds, we were very excited.
