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!

Much better peas

Loving my Lincolns! Bought them from a different vendor last year, the germination rate was really poor and the ones that did come up took FOREVER. These have been in a week and are already through the soil. Very Happy!

First Try

Lincoln is my first try at shell peas and I was very pleased. Pods were plump and yielded loads of peas -- thought they were on the large side, personally. Will definitely grow again next year. I planted by a trellis this year but that proved unnecessary as they don't vine much.

All-round good peas

I've been growing Lincoln for a good many years, on the shore of Lake Erie in Ohio, and find it dependable and delicious. Which is why I continue to grow it.
