Peas are easy to grow, producing masses of pods loaded with sweet-tasting peas that can be eaten raw or cooked, and used in salads, stir-fries and as a traditional accompaniment to meat dishes. The sweetness of peas quickly diminishes after picking, so it's best to eat them as soon after harvesting as possible.
Pisum sativum 'Little Marvel' is an exquisitely sweet and juicy pea. It has a neat growing habit and is easy to pick. 'Little Marvel' can be sown early in year, as well as in June for a crop that will mature in autumn. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
