Dwarf Grey Sugar Pea

60 days. The pods are plump, fleshy and very tender when harvested young. In 1856, the Comstock, Ferre and Co catalog said: “About 3 feet high, and of very strong growth. Pods, long, and slightly curved. Containing mostly seven peas, which show in relief along the pods. They are usually cooked in the pods like snap beans. Of excellent quality, but rather late, and only a moderate bearer.” This variety produces 2 to 3 inch pods as well as a bonus of delicious green foliage and lavender red flowers that are pretty and tasty in salads.

What are the pros? Hardy, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

I've never grown snow peas before, so I don't have much basis for comparison. That being said, I found these peas to be tasty and tender enough. I think they certainly are better than what I can get at the grocery store. I don't know if I'd grow them again, mainly because I enjoy snap and shell peas quite a bit more and I have limited space, however I don't have anything negative to say about these peas. I bought the seeds back in 2012 and when I planted them in March this year (2014) I had 100% germination. The plants have very pretty flowers, and the vines withstood several early spring freezes that were atypical for our area. I got to eat at least two pods daily in the spring once my 9 plants began producing, and I think they would've done even better had I not tried to get so many plants into a square foot of garden space. The pods were sweet and delicious, but I didn't really get enough at one time to do any cooking with them. They were nice right off the vine though!

What are the pros? long-bearing,heat tolerant

What are the cons? small pod

Review:

This is my fave snow pea; when others have given up due to heat, my "summer snows" keep on bearing as long as I keep them picked. They are on the small side and get tough if you let them go too long- like any snow pea. Beautiful flowers on a fence.

What are the pros? beautiful vines and blooms

What are the cons? pods even young ones are tough

Review:

This is an old variety I won't plant again. The vines were beautiful. But the pods are tough to eat raw and also tough when cooked even with the string removed. I tried them very young (with no peas inside yet) and later as sugar snap peas with the peas inside them.
