Appropriately enough, these peas were introduced in peacetime, just after World War II. The Lincoln Pea originated in England, the home of many superior shelling peas. This variety was first offered in the States by J.M. Thorburn in 1908, and quickly became the most superior in taste and quality. Lincoln Shell still stands at the top of the list for sweetness in shelling peas. High yields and sweet, tender flavor. Suited for eating fresh, freezing or canning, the 4-5″ pods are loaded with 6-9 sweet, tender peas. Heat and wilt tolerant, the 18-30″ plants require staking with a small pea fence for proper support.
