    I’d like to swap for some seeds of this, so— if you can, pretty please let enough go to maturity that you can have seeds and so can I? :)
    Sending you a PM with more info…

    I’ve got some seeds ready to send now. Unfortunately, I’m busy packing for this trip. But I can do a seed swap with you when I get back in mid-April or something.

    You probably wouldn’t want the saved seed. I’ve got 4 different varieties growing close to each other and I’m sure they’re cross-pollinating because some of my flat snow peas are turning round in the pod.
