I grew this one in 2009 because of the early maturity, which was as advertised. Averages about 6 peas per pod. The flavor is great and the peas hold their sweetness.

This would be a good one for canning, as the peas mature within a very short window of time. I notice that my vines are starting a second round of growth, now that I've picked them, but the temps are in the 90s so I won't be expecting another crop here this year.
