Pea, Champion of England

Catalog #1524

4620
(Pisum sativum) 1840s heirloom from the family of Robert Woodbridge, brought to SSE by Ben Gabel and Kate McEvoy. Robert’s grandmother got the seed “from the head gardener at a big country house during the war” and grew it in her garden in the village of Pickworth, Lincolnshire, England. A traditional tall pea that reaches heights of 10 feet—a great return for a small space. Eight to ten peas per pod. Shell, 60-75 days.
