8 reviews

Heirloom before 1908. This variety has been popular in New England for generations. 3” pods contain 8-9 relatively small peas. Flavor is very sweet. They yield throughout July on 2 1/2’ vines. 

1 Ounce = 135-155 seeds


Pisum sativum

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 50-75ºF. Planting in cooler soil results in slower germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1" deep

Sowing Outdoors- Early spring until last frost date when soil temperature reaches 50-75ºF. Sow 1-2" apart. Sow two months before last frost date for smaller fall harvests.

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row

Harvest- Pick every day for continuous harvest.

Tips- Adding inoculant with rhizobium bacteria will increase yields. Varieties with vine lengths over 3 feet require support.

    These germinate and produce really well - a shelling pea, I always freeze them for enjoyment through the winter.

    Lincoln peas

    Love these peas, great flavor, and they grow like crazy.

    Not as sweet as I would like.

    These peas grew great, but we weren't as happy with the flavor, not as sweet as we would like. They also didn't grow very tall, we had 4ft trellis and normally our peas overtake the whole thing. These stayed pretty low and only got 2ft off the trellis even though they had tons of pods. (a good thing in smaller gardens.) Might try a different variety next year for optimum taste. Located in SLC, UT.

    Hi Markie, Thank you for sharing your experience. The Lincoln Pea is an heirloom and they definitely are not as sweet as newer varieties. They also have bush tendencies and only get to about 25-30 inches. I hope you can find a variety you like better. I wish you a wonderful autumn season!

    Well, I still can't plant so I will have to get back to you on them.
