Characterized by its compact growth habit, this pea plant exhibits a bushy appearance adorned with lush, deep green foliage, presenting a visually appealing addition to any garden. The vibrant leaves signal the imminent development of pea pods.

The pods of the Avalanche Pea encase tender, succulent peas with a delicate sweetness. These peas offer a pleasing texture and a mildly sweet taste, perfect for fresh consumption, salads, or light cooking, infusing dishes with freshness and flavor.

For successful growth, the Avalanche Pea thrives in well-drained, fertile soil enriched with organic matter. Sow the seeds directly into the ground when the soil temperature reaches about 45-75°F (7-24°C) for optimal germination.
