Prussian Blue - Garden Peas

This is an old garden pea variety that is used for split pea soup and grows pretty well in the U.S. It was grown by Thomas Jefferson in his Monticello Garden. It grew pretty well. I've had hit and miss with peas depending on where in the country I am living. It is inordinately more difficult to grow peas in the south, but some varieties do well. Northern states and states with cooler weather are great places to grow most garden peas. I found this variety at Heritage Harvest.
