  • Pea 'Bijou'

    This is a pea that unfortunately I could not find much information about. Probably quite old, perhaps French? Seeds either from Heritage Seed Library or from Real Seeds. What is stunning about this pea is that it has the largest mangetout pods I know. Green, slightly yellow pods that taste delightfully sweet. Real Seeds say they can get to 7 inches long. Mine are not quite that huge, but they are the size of beans rather than peas. And they are very sweet, perfect steamed.

      Forgot to say that when the pods get older, they get a yellowy green.

      Yes the pods are big, but later in the season they get smaller. As they start off so big, that is very noticeable

        Mine were from Real Seeds. How does the size compare to Eat Me?
