(Pisum sativum) Originated in England and introduced in the United
States in the mid-nineteenth century. There are
several peas in the history of this type variety; over
time further reductions in height and advances in
earliness were achieved. At 8" tall this is the best
dwarf pea for container gardening. Plants are able to
withstand hard frosts. Shell, 50-55 days.
Green Thumb Tip Peas thrive in cool weather. Sow seeds outdoors as
soon as soil can be worked in spring. In addition
to containers, Tom Thumb is good for cold-frame
production and for planting in flower borders. ± 2,000 seeds/oz
