65 days — The vines are wilt resistant, uniform, reaching twenty-eight to thirty inches and benefit from some support. 'Early Frosty' is a prolific freezing variety producing pods that are about four inches long, blunt-ended, dark-green in color, and containing seven to eight peas each. A good home garden and fresh market variety used for fresh eating or freezing.

Bred and released by Rogers Brothers Seed Co., Idaho Falls, Idaho in 1966.[1] Each ounce is approximately 150 seeds, which is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.

Here on the farm, orchard pruning time closely coincides with pea planting time. This means there there is always ample material for pea support. We simply poke twigs into the ground along the pea row and they grow up through them.
