What are the pros? Sturdy plants, prolific
What are the cons? Underwhelming flavor
I’ve had great luck getting these peas to grow, and the plants are a beauty to look at! They’re nice and strong, have all outgrown their trellises, and produce prolific amounts of peas as well as the tendrils (best picked young, for maximum tenderness). Unfortunately, the ones I planted this year have not tasted like much of anything, even once very filled out. This is in sharp contrast to the Sugar Ann peas I planted fewer of, but which have had an incredible sweet flavor.
I’ll try again with a few more in my later planting but next year will likely retire this variety except as an ornamental, for which it had been truly exceptional. It is a gorgeous plant.
