Margaret McKee Baking Pea
(Pisum sativum); Heirloom; Climbing pea; Dry pea; Minimum 20 seeds
An early 20th century heirloom from Canada, these sturdy plants are grown on short trellising (up to 2 feet) or as bushes with external support. The abundance of cheery bi-color flowers mature to chubby pods housing large brown mottled peas that when dry are delicious in baking recipes. Typical of peas Margaret McKee Baking Pea prefers cooler temperatures and keeps producing when kept picked. An early maturing variety in our gardens.
