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,
Green Thumb Tip Peas thrive in cool weather. Sow seeds outdoors
as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Seeds will
germinate in 7-14 days. Double rows of peas can be
planted on each side of a trellis. ± 2,000 seeds/lb
