No experience with this pea, but if it comes from Seminis I wouldn't use it for a second - - - - they do mostly all GMO's. To me that truly defeats one of the purposes of growing ones own garden. . . healthy food. Just my two cents worth.

A large podded cultivar from Seminis. Vine reaches 28 inches with pointed pods up to 7.5 inches long. (58 day) Resistant to fusarium wilt race 1 and powdery mildew. The vines only attained 15 - 18 inches here, Nice, large pods and a reasonable yield.
