This super-rare Swedish heirloom was saved from a 1700s manor house garden near
Skövde, Sweden by Alma, the grandmother of well-known Swedish seed preservationist Ulla Häggstam; hence the name. It is called “marrow” due to the rich, fatty texture of the fresh peas. The tall 4-to-5-foot vines produce a superabundance of plump shelling peas, 4 to 6 in a pod. Ideal for short season parts of the country and especially the Upper Midwest. 25 seeds $5.00.
