Pea, Champion of England

An historic variety originally introduced in the 1840s, this heirloom strain is from the family of Robert Woodbridge brought to SSE by Ben Gabel and Kate McEvoy. Robert’s grandmother got the seed “from the head gardener at a big country house during the war” and grew it in her garden in the village of Pickworth, Lincolnshire, England.
