Brochette white flowered

When translated from French, the word 'Brochette' means skewer and is used as a synonym of the 'Chenille' or 'Caterpillar' pea first described by Vilmorin (1913). At maturity the peas are often lightly stuck together in their pod with a gum-like substance secreted by the seed coat, hence they resemble a caterpillar – or kebab! As one would expect, this ex-commercial variety produces fairly compact plants (around 1.1m) and white flowers followed by slightly curved pods with 5-6 peas in each.
