With stems reaching just 8 to 12 inches long, ‘Tom Thumb’ pea (Pisum sativum) is perfectly scaled for small gardens. You’re not likely to get a harvest big enough to feed a family, but you can generally get a couple of handfuls of pods from a raised bed, windowbox, or container planting; no need for a trellis. The compact plants have white flowers that mature into green pods. This heirloom variety is considered a shelling pea (the fresh seeds are removed from the pods for eating), but I also like to pick the thin new pods and eat them whole as a snack in the garden or sprinkled into salads. Full sun. Annual.
Harvested in early July 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
