Cascadia Pea

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
65 days. A snap pea with unusually thick-walled pods. Pods are at their peak at about 3” long, and have sweet, wrinkled little peas in them at that time. So crisp and juicy! The plants require no staking, since they reach only about 30” in height. A newer variety that has some disease resistance, a distinct improvement over Sugar Ann. Bred by Jim Baggett of OSU especially for the Northwest.

What are the pros? Taste!

What are the cons? None really.

Review:

Planted these hoping at the end of August hoping for a fall harvest; high temps and lack of rain/adequate water meant only a few made it in my community garden. That being said, the ones that did were absolutely delicious. Big pods on small plants just bursting with sweet peas that were a welcome addition to salads. Those that made it out of the garden didn't last in the kitchen for long. I will be planting these instead of the Little Marvel next year for the superior flavor.

What are the pros? Dependable

What are the cons? They do require staking

Review:

These are my favorite reliable snap pea. I have grown them 3-4 years now and they are sweet, productive, and have a long season here in Kentucky. I don't know why the descriptions say they don't require staking. I have purchased them from several different catalogs, and they always require a short trellis. I have a lot of disease in my heavy clay soil. Although I grow in raised beds or straw bales now, I still find that these are much more successful if kept off the ground with a bamboo and twine which also helps when spraying for insects (which are prolific here). My favorite pea for early spring planting. We eat them raw in the garden and I've had them peek up out of the late spring snow at me just fine.

What are the pros? easy to grow, delicious

What are the cons? needs support

Review:

This is my first year gardening with mixed success. These peas were one of the first things I've harvested and they are delicious. You can eat them in the pod whenever or let them really plump up in the pod and shell them. I soaked them until they sprouted before planting them. One complaint I have is that they really should be staked, I had them in a bed with horizontal netting for my corn and a few of the plants got a lot bigger than the others and took over most of the space, they did get around 3 feet tall, some a little higher. I think if I'd had some vertical support system, either stakes or trellising, more of my plants would have grown larger. However I am getting plenty of peas from the larger plants I have and am happy to have something to show my first year of gardening. I planted these on 4/1 and first peas were picked 6/18 and they're still growing with no sign of slowing. I would definitely recommend this as a first timer crop.

Review:

These are it. I have been growing snap peas forever and I'm not a young man. Planted these a couple of years ago and I am still blown away by them. I do plant them on a fence - they grow taller than the description.I plant a 40' row and it provides my wife and I with a years' supply of succulent peas. I put two one gallon freezer bags away, give plenty to the kids, and eat them fresh. We like to let them get a little big - they seem to get sweeter. They last longer into the summer than other peas do. I planted a fall crop this year and it didn't do well but I'll try it again. Delicious and productive here in Michigan.

What are the pros? overly productive and easy

What are the cons? flops over

Review:

Comes back from nothing even after ground squirrel attacks. Produced so much that we got sick of peas and fed the extra to the animals. Somewhat floppy so a short fence or trellis is a good idea since it did not hold on to the short sticks we crisscrossed in the bed.
