I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

This is a name we have chosen for a little known very old vegetable or is it a fruit? A native of North America it is also reputed that it was cultivated by German monks over 400 years ago.
You grow this and eat it as you would spinach, but the surprise is to come! Very tiny at first, then day by day growing bigger in each leaf joint or axil of the plant appears Strawberry coloured like fruit. Do not be too anxious to pick. Leave until they become dark crimson red, then pick. So sweet and delicious.
