This arguably the best English pea that I have grown. Long slender pods with the best quality peas. Very productive. While I grew without trellising, Green Arrow does have medium lenght vines and would profit from some support.

Green Arrow is a fine pea of the garden or shelling variety. Nice green pods fill up quickly with plump peas with excellent flavor. My favorite green shelling pea.
