Source for marrowfat pea?

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone can share a source for marrowfat peas (Pisum sativum var. medullare). You know, the large, pale-green, flat(ish), traditional English pea used in preparing mushy peas. I'm wanting to give them a go in my garden.

Maybe I've run across them and just don't know their names?

much appreciated!

RE: Source for marrowfat pea?

I can't really answer your question, sugarmags, but the link gives some info. Personally I have never tasted or bought mushy peas and I've never heard of anyone growing their own. You just buy packets of dried marrowfat peas or canned mushy ones. I would have thought that any large seeded English pea would do after drying.

Here is a link that might be useful: mushy peas
