This is a small cream pea that produces well. Vines are compact and bushy. Its most significant trait is its ability to self seed. Under my conditions, disk down the pea patch at the end of the season, disk again in the early spring, and you have a new patch. This is the only variety I have grown that will lie in the ground all winter and emerge in late spring.
