Introduced in 1943, 'Wando' is a cross between 'Laxton's Progress' (an English heirloom) and 'Perfection' (a New England heirloom). It is cold tolerant for early sowing, and more heat tolerant than other pea cultivars. Sturdy, 24"-30" plants with 7-9 medium-sized peas in each pod. Sow in early spring and again in midsummer. In mild climates, it can even be sown in fall for winter harvest.
This packet sows up to 14 feet.
