This pea did really well in my garden. I like to plant them to snack on while I work outside. Other varieties I have tried in the past barely had a chance to produce before hot weather hit, but these outdid themselves.
One of my son's favorite foods is peas, and I think it is because of him having helped me plant and harvest them since he was a toddler.

This is my first year for growing Little Marvel peas. As with the Alaska peas we're also growing for the first time, I was unprepared when the shortest vines were twice the height suggested on the seed packet (ours reached 30-36").
We're over half-way through the harvest after having made three separate plantings timed a couple or so weeks apart. We really enjoy their sweet flavor when eaten raw; haven't tried cooking them yet.

Little Marvel is an oldtime early wrinkled seeded pea. It was grown extensively in my youth but Blue Bantam, Early Bird and Frosty are superior in my opinion. It grows a short vine, yields reasonably well and has good flavor.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Rest Haven, Georgia
Whitmore Lake, Michigan
Mint Hill, North Carolina
