Our favorite shelling pea, we love Organic Maxigolt Shelling Pea for her impressively large pods and gloriously huge peas with exceptional sweetness. Her huge 5+ foot vines yield massive abundance and although Maxigolt is our final pea to mature, she is so worth the wait. Our original seed came from the Swiss biodynamic seed company Sativa whose soils and climate are very similar to our own here in the Finger Lakes and indeed, Maxigolt is right at home.
