    We had a favourite a couple of years ago - Balmoral. Came as part of a bumper pack. Never seen them since! Always grow Kelvedon Wonder now, autumn sown shoots about 2.5cm high now. Might try Hurst Green Shaft (although another vote for no more seeds )

    The thing to remember with peas is that if you have too many seeds and want to get rid of them, you can always grow them for pea shoots.

    Don't plan on cooking any.
    Especially if any kids are helping to pick/pod them.

    Aaah so THAT'S the difference I've only ever grown Hurst Greenshaft in the past so never knew the different types. This year, however, I'm going all adventurous and trying at least three or four different types
