One of the few that did well here. Was a bush type, though some say it's a pole? Maybe it'll grow bigger if there is support or more time. Quite productive. Great as green beans too. I used black plastic to increase soil temps.

The only reason that I gave this variety a neutral is because they didn't produce nearly as much as the other crowder pea types that I grow. They put on a tad bit earlier than my other varieties but were dead or dying very quickly compared to the others in my garden. However, the taste was exceptional.
