Some new plants are carefully created by crossing parents to produce an expected result. Some are produced by chance. I have no idea where this came from but can tell you that the white podded and seeded mange-tout is amazing! I am working on increasing it to share.
It is not impossible that this came from a cross from Modern Landrace breeder Joseph Lofthouse. It was found nearby where his Pisum sativum shelling landrace was planted. However, there were several of them in a short row so I can't be sure. I can tell you this though: yum.
