Plant details

This is an excellent, high quality, double podded variety guaranteed to outperform 'Onward' in every way. It has been shown to be one of the best cropping varieties in trials. 'Rondo' has rich green, straight, long pods containing on average ten deliciously plump peas. It is a wrinkle-seeded maincrop variety with some resistance to fusarium disease. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
