Our donor had grown this variety on his farm in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, since the 1950s, however, he was originally given the seeds by a Mr Robinson, who had acquired them in Scotland. The vigorous plants (>2m) produce long, slim, slightly curved pods over a long season. Extraordinarily sweet, retaining their flavour even when frozen. Guardian and Garden Organic Trustee Adam Alexander says, “The finest pea I grow.”
