    JAmber JAmber's Snap pea 'Cascadia' was Reviewed day 124

    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.

    FaithAbounds FaithAbounds's Snap pea 'Sugar Daddy' was Reviewed day 27

    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.

    keen101 keen101's Pea, 'Golden Sweet' was Reviewed day 176

    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.

    Russell_G Russell_G's Mangetout was Reviewed day 127

    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

    kelly kelly's Slocan Snow Peas was Reviewed day 82

    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.

    LentilSoup LentilSoup's 16 - Pea 'Oregon Sugar Pod II' was Reviewed day 80

    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.
