Ne Plus Ultra
This was one of the first hardy wrinkled peas, introduced in 1847 and reaching a peak of popularity in the 1860s and 1870s. Pods are dark, borne in pairs and, according to RHS trials in 1860, abundant. We agree. It is also a tall variety (>2m), producing large peas with a fine, sweet flavour, delicious when popped straight from the pod. Sow to harvest 90-100 days (approx.)
