Lincoln produces dark green curved pods which are well filled with extremely sweet peas. The crops from this variety of pea are heavy and the plant will reach a height of about 60cm.
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.
