Amplissimo Viktoria Ukrainskaya Pea
(Pisum sativum); Heirloom; Climbing pea; Soup pea; Minimum 20 seeds
A soup pea of Ukrainian heritage, this "Chickpea of the North" is known for its robust plants that produce soup peas of a rich and deeply satisfying flavor. A proliferation of white flowers on 5.5 foot vines give way to plump pods that when dry yield an average of six large, cream colored round peas each. As suggested by their nickname, these peas are good substitutes in chickpea recipes.
