Noteworthy in its proliferation of tendrils, Red Fox Carlin Pea is a unique dry pea for your garden. A commercial variety from England, the fox red colored dry peas are used in place of chickpeas or lentils in curries, stews or hearty soups. They also feature in Parched Peas, boiled and served with vinegar and salt. As a delightful bonus, the tendrils are crisp and sweet when lightly steamed. I grow the prolific plants on a trellis but their hyper-tendrils mean they are self-supportive.
