Oregon Sugar Pod II
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Sturdy Vines, Good Storage

What are the cons? None

Review:

Observations from four consecutive seasons suggest: Disease resistant. Pods however, only grow to a maximum of 3 inches before they start filling out. Unlike advertised to grow 18-30 inches vines, when trellised, will climb to 5 feet. Young pods keep well under refrigeration if packed loosely in partially open Zip-Lock bags. Tender when young, super sweet when steamed.

Would grow better on a trellis
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Tastes great

What are the cons? It still needs a trellis

Review:

This is one of the best tasting of the four pea varieties I planted this year. I tried growing it as a bush pea without any support, planting seeds close together so they can hold each other up. This was not all that successful. The peas have fallen over on each other and finding the pods isn't that easy. My trellised peas are much easier to pick. Next year I'll put these on a trellis too.

Oregon Sugar Pod II snow peas
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Almost 100% germination

What are the cons? Dont have any yet

Review:

I planted Oregon Sugar Pod II & I thought they were a little stringy, it may be something I did or didn't do, they tasted great. I bought a large bag of seed, so I'm going to replant again this fall. I've been buying my seeds from Baker Creek Seed Co. for the past 5 to 6 years have not been disappoint.

Review:

For some reason, I've never been successful at growing peas in my garden. We have a very long, hot gardening season and I've had difficulty finding the right timing and variety of peas to grow. I direct seeded these in early October (while temps were still in the 90's) and began harvesting mid-February. They were able to withstand the few evenings of light freeze that we get in winter. I grew them on chicken wire for support and found they needed a little help finding the chicken wire and attaching their tendrils at the beginning but they eventually got going on their own and really held on through some windy storms. They were delicious raw, right out of the garden as well as stir fried. I'm thrilled to have found this variety. It will be a regular in my garden.

Reliable snow pea
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Reliable

What are the cons? Not really any

Review:

Nice snow pea. It is my go to variety. Always look forward to the early spring planting and them peaking out of the late spring snow at me. I worry about frost damage, but they do fine. They accept different soil conditions and do alright in clay. They require a short trellis and keep well for a snow pea. We eat them mostly right away anyway. Good yields. There may be some strings if you let them get large, but they are easily removed. Sweet crunchy variety.
