This unusual heirloom originated in England and was first introduced in the US by Landreth Seeds, Philadelphia, in the 1850 s, Tom Thumb Peas Aka Half Pint Peas are a super heirloom vegetable. Even more frost-tolerant than most other pea varieties, and, it requires no staking! Tom Thumb Pea Aka Half Pint Pea is absolutely the best pea variety for container planting! Reaching only 8 to 9 inches in height, it’s grown mainly as a shelling type, but the pods are also sweet, tender, and delicious when harvested very young. A wonderful choice for those with a limited amount of garden space. The dwarf vines from this 1800s heirloom will produce a tasty crop of sweet, delicate peas. A good variety for cold frame planting or container growing. An excellent choice for home gardens. Plants set in rich soil and larger areas produce more pea pods than those grown in containers. Shell, 50–55 days.

Peas can be planted outside in March as soon as the soil is warm because the plants can withstand hard frost down to 20 degrees.
