I live in zone 3-4 (Anchorage, AK) and planted these this year. They grew over 7 feet tall with great production. My family loves the flavor and snaps peas off just to eat out of hand almost every time they go outside. Cooking makes them a bit sweeter, and they work well in all sorts of recipes. Probably the best sugar snap pea I've ever grown, and we plan to put in a lot more next year.Review by Shala (on 8/13/13)
I trialled a few different varieties and this is the one I stuck with. The pods are exceptionally tasty and the vines are heat tolerant and produced into the summer heat. They were productive and got very tall. They did get powdery mildew, but only at the end of the season when production was slowing down anyway.Review by Stephanie (on 12/10/12)
