I live in Louisville, KY and so far, my vines have stayed very short - they don't have any kind of trellis and they don't need one. Vines are sturdy. The peas aren't the most flavorful - not sweet like other edible pea pods. I just read about another blauschokker pea available here at Baker Creek that says they are a soup pea, not meant to be eaten raw - I think that might apply to these. They are extremely pretty and I'm glad I tried them.
