Its vines will grow up to 10 feet, growing up and over your trellis and producing plenty of peas! Plant early in spring after the ground thaws.

Linda Enerson, the farmer/owner of Ox and Robin, has been working with heirloom and rare seeds since 2011. After joining Seed Savers Exchange, a worldwide network of seed savers, she was hooked on exploring and preserving the wonderful qualities of heirloom vegetable and herb varieties, many of which surpass commonly available food crops in taste, disease resistance and aesthetic appeal.
In addition to raising crops, she also trains the oxen used as the main power source on the farm. Linda also creates the watercolor/collage artwork for every Ox and Robin seed label.
