Manoa C Pea

Manoa C Pea


Pisum sativum


A sugar pea that was developed in Manoa by the UH breeder James Gilbert during the same project that led to Manoa Sugar, a variety offered to this day by the UH Seed Lab. Manoa C found its way back to Hawai'i from the collection of Oregon State University breeder Jim Myers, who inherited it from his predecessor. Publications from the 1950's mention a Manoa A and a Manoa B strain from Jim Gilbert's work, so we are assuming that Manoa C was a later variety developed by him. It is a much smaller vine than Manoa Sugar, which can get very large.
