I grew the Mammoth Melting pea for the first time this year along with another pea. I found these peas to be much sweeter (even as they aged) than the other peas that claimed to be sweet, and the Mammoth peas held on the vines longer. They were much more evenly sized than the other pea, and it was easy to tell when they were ready to pick. I will grow these peas from now on! Very happy to have found a great variety.
