Kelvedon Wonder is a very popular variety and is the gardeners choice which is highly suited to successional sowing. It produces heavy crops of dark green pointed pods with excellent flavoured, sweet small peas and the plant will grow to a height of 45cm.
Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.
