Frank’s Pea, the 1850s gold rush heirloom that captured the heart of the Diggers community is in production in our certified organic garden. Diggers original seeds were provided by octogenarian and member, May Barnes whose family has grown the pea since the days of the gold rush. A vigorous plant with spectacular mauve flowers, Frank’s Pea is a delectable snap pea while young which matures into an equally delicious shelling pea. Pop this one in your annual garden plan; seeds harvested will be available to Diggers members late spring. ☺️ .. .. #frankspea  #pisumsativum  #c1853  #afterthegoldrush  #heirloomseeds  #seedsaving  #growyourown  #diggersclub

    I think I've got one of these by accident - have tagged you in my original post of it.

    These are the ones that have a purple pod .. very sweet ... but if you cook them the colour disappears

    I've grown these this year, but I think my neighbor has sprayed as they turned brown now.. ☹️ but so beautiful when in flower!
