Pisum sativum

 

80 days to maturity

 

Grow to harvest as a dry pea. I was attracted to these curious peas from the Irish Seed Savers Association as they are a unique crop thought to be native to Ireland. They grow very vigorously and tall so need a 6-8 foot trellis. The flowers are gorgeous. The resulting peas are very large and look more like a fava bean than a pea- hence the name Prean I suppose. They cook up fine and make a delicious addition to a winter soup. Cook like a dry bean.
