It has always been a good producer of high quality snap peas for me. I usually end up eating half the peas before I even get them back to the house.

This is a short vine sugar snap pea.The pods are small and stringy, very inferior in texture and flavor to Burpee's Sugar Snap. It is an early pea introduced by Novartis in 1981. PVP
