Snap pea reviews
Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon

These peas are sweet and crisp. They need to be on a trellis. I planted a double row, close together but they didn’t support each other. I added a string trellis. Next time, use a sturdier trellis.

These are a good addition to a garden as they are great straight from the vine in salads or as a snack. Have a mild bell pepper flavor. Great dipped in ranch dressing still in the pod.

An excellent pea. Prolific and flavourful.

Must be sown inside w/ bagged mix in Z9 TX.
Outdoor sowings: Sown early they rot, Sown at recommended time eaten by cutworms & birds, Sown later to avoid cutworms couldn’t yield before heat hits.

They were tasty, although not very prolific. The seed was old, though.

Delicious and productive over a very long season

About 5% of the pods were green snap peas… Weeded them out today.

Golden Sweet is a very interesting pea variety. It’s yellow pods are striking, and it is a very early producer. Similar to the one used by Mendel. It is great, but could use a little breeding work.

First time growing Oregon Sugar Pod and very impressed with the high yield of over 330 pods from a small 90cm strip. Very tasty and highly recommend and will be growing again.

Peas did poorly. Combination of heat and rabbits killed the harvest

Great fresh and dried. Unlike other snow peas, it flourishes in heat, vines growing up to about 7ft tall. Very sweet and crisp as a snap pea, & good for soups as dried. Perfect for a hot climate.

Pretty good raw, but is not a high producer, and doesn’t seem to cook well for me(strings remain after). Would I plant again? Probably not. Yes, if I had enough space for different pea varieties.
