Oregon Sugar Pod Snow Pea
Excellent freezer variety. Grow on a trellis.
Contains 25 heirloom seeds
I love the flavor of Oregon Sugar Pod Peas. If they were just a bit more productive they'd give Mammoth Melting a run for my favorite. As it is they taste so good I grow them every year. They are easy to grow here in Zone 8b. They are more compact than Mammoth Melting and as such might be better for a smaller garden, but like all peas they need a trellis for pea fence to do their best. I think the main reason pea fence is so important is that it keeps the vines more open, allowing better ventilation and helping to prevent pea enation virus or mildews from forming and spreading. It also makes it easier to find the peas as they develop.
