…and again in 1943:
PARAMOUNT SUGAR PEAS
Some two years ago ‘Sap’ re-introduced to the readers of these notes the Para mount Sugar Pea. It was generally recognised as an outstanding novelty of re-cent years. It was unfortunate that some few days after the bulk of the sowings were made several Inches of rain fell which in some soils, caused most of the seed to rot In the ground. Later sowings however, germinated well, and reports from many directions Indicated that this sugar pea met with general approval. Last year. In consequence of the demand, no seeds were available, but this year a limited quantity can now be sent for from most of the Southern seedsmen. An application to most dealers if they have no stocks in hand, will procure the peas for you. Paramount sugar pea grows about four feet In height, and produces a heavy crop of giant fleshy pods, four or five inches in length. Two dishes may be obtained from the one crop, by using the shelled peas, and the thick, fleshy and stringless pods give a dish not previously known. The line Is quite distinct from any other garden variety, and much more valuable. Now If the time to sow.
It sounds quite delicious, a mange-tout or snap pea judging by its description!
