Superior yield and very easy to grow.

These were great peas. They generally had 8-10 peas in each pod and wonderful flavor. I did not trellis them as they only grew to about 24" and kept themselves upright for the most part. Many pods on each vine and kept going for a long time.

A tasty pea in my garden. Will grow again.

Pods are almost always borne in doubles, containing 8-11 peas. 62-70 days.

Green Arrow is far and away the best English pea cultivar that I have tried. It has a large vine and needs to be trellised but yields and flavor are exceptional. It has a long skinny pod which reminds me of an oversized sweet pea pod. It is a midseason pea which fits nicely between Frosty and Wando.
