Heirloom.

Introduced in 1943, ‘Wando’ is a cross between ‘Laxton’s Progress’ (an English heirloom) and ‘Perfection’ (a New England heirloom). It is cold tolerant for early sowing, and more heat tolerant than other pea cultivars. Sturdy, 24″-30″ plants with 7-9 medium-sized peas in each pod. Sow in early spring and again in midsummer. In mild climates, it can even be sown in fall for winter harvest.

This 25 gram packet sows up to 14 feet.

Days to Maturity: 68 days

Harvesting: Shelling peas should be harvested when the pods are plump, about 3 weeks after flowering. Peas that are too mature are tough and will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest regularly when pods are at their peak. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick the pods with the other; vines are fragile.
