Introduced in 1908 and also known as American Wonder, Little Marvel garden peas are an English variety that is a cross between Daisy and William Hurst. It won the distinguished "All-America Selections" award in 1934 and has been prized for decades for its perfectly sweet flavor. Little Marvel garden pea plants are petite in size (15-20 inches tall), but very generous yielders, producing countless hardy green pods 3-4 inches long that each house 6-7 medium-sized, crisp green peas with a very sweet flavor. Plant your seeds in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked, and continue planting every 2-3 weeks to enjoy successive crops all summer long and even into the fall. A dependable shelling variety, Little Marvel garden peas are ready to be picked when you can see that the peas have enlarged inside the pods and the pods are still a bright green. Hold the vines while harvesting to avoid tearing them. Pop the pods open at the seam and scoop the peas out with your thumb. Very crisp in texture and super sweet in flavor, Little Marvel garden peas are very versatile and will taste just a fantastic whether fresh, frozen, canned, or cooked.
