The original French mange tout (eat all) sugar pea. Unlike Snow Peas which can go fibrous if left too long, Caroubys large fleshy pods stay sweet and tender much longer even when overgrown. A bonus is the attractive purple flowers that smother the vines which also show good heat tolerance and resistance to mildew.
Maturity 65 days from direct sowing.
