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.

What are the pros? great producer, tasty!

Review:

These peas really like high desert conditions. Even after repeated deer grazing, they continued to flower and set sweet, crunchy pea pods.
