More than a novelty, this variety produces flat pods that are a beautiful, bright lemon-yellow, great in stir-fries. Tall 6' vines with purple flowers. Collected from a market in India, rare and tasty.

What are the pros? Unique taste, no problems

What are the cons? --

Review:

This is my third year growing these. I usually plant in the spring and the late summer in Northern Illinois. The plants grow beautifully and require staking. One bamboo pole per vine is a good way to go. Usually mine get around 6 ft tall with beautiful purple flowers. Fabulous heat tolerance and drought tolerance (we've had both). The taste is sweet, crisp and delicate. Best paired in vegetarian and shellfish dishes, salads, or on their own. One thing I found is that pod size is inconsistent (2-7 peas in a pod), and lots of pods tend to curl. In collecting seeds, I have selected for pods with 5 peas and that have not curled. After four plantings the plants had changed enough to select for 6-7 peas per pod, so specific selection is worthwhile with this variety.

What are the pros? Delicious

Review:

I reviewed this pea a few years ago and was not impressed. We tried it again this year because ground squirrels ate most of our early fall pea plantings. This pea grew fast, was productive and had great tasting huge pods. It resisted mildew until late spring after giving us loads of very early peas. It was the one pea my daughter sought out first - out of 5 or 6 varieties. It was grown in very rich soil in zone 9, coastal influence area. Heavy frost did not bother it at all. It held up to drought well too. I am ordering more.

What are the pros? Easy to harvest

What are the cons? shortish season?

Review:

I grew these last year and will continue growing them every year now because their yellow color made them sooo easy to harvest! Seemed very prolific to me too. Nice taste, darling purple flowers, edible shoots, and they froze nicely (blanched first). The season seemed a tad shortish, but it was only my second year growing snow peas and I might have planted them a bit late, so take that into consideration. Once the peas inside the pods started getting fat, the flavor isn't nearly as sweet, but leave those on the plant to fully ripen etc and you can save those for planting next season. Or use them as a treat for your dogs - our yorkies didn't mind the older peas one bit! ;-)

What are the pros? easy to find and to harvest

What are the cons? all the critters love them

Review:

This is a wonderful snow pea to grow. I like them because they are easy to spot on the vine and also are very tasty. Everyone I have shared seeds with loves them. The only problem with the seeds once they sprout and grow in the Fall is that all the critters from bugs to birds love to eat them too. If you plant these late in the Fall (Oct-Nov), then you would get to eat any until March. So plant them early in September.
