This is a tall variety (1.8-2.1m) that needs strong pea sticks to support the large pods produced. They were grown for many years on the Llanover Estate in Wales from seeds brought to the UK by a German prisoner of war (WWI). Once the war was over, he returned to marry a Welsh girl and continued to work on the estate. Produces white flowers and pods filled with small, sweet peas.
