'Kelvedon Wonder' is a popular and well-flavoured pea variety which grows on dwarf plants to 50-60cm. tall,making it excellent for container growing and smaller gardens. As home growers we want to grow reliable disease resistant varieties and this one has amongst its attractive qualities resistance to Pea Wilt and tolerance to Downy Mildew all of which make this an award winning variety as recommended by the RHS. Its thin-shelled pods mean it can be picked very young and used as mange tout for those stir fries.
