36 inches tall is an understatement. Plan on trellising for 48+ inch vines. Hold well under refrigeration, easily frozen for storage. Unbelievable flavor and texture... pull the zipper and cook 1 minute in boiling water.

Grew the dwarf white sugar peas this year and have been very impressed. They have done very well in Maine this year even with little sun and alot of rain. They were additionally planted in an area that is partially shaded. Good producers and great texture and flavor. Highly reccomend.

Dwarf White Sugar Snow Pea is a cold-hardy productive producer of very sweet, delicious snow peas. My vines were taller than Dwarf Gray Sugar Snow Pea by about 2 feet. My seeds came from Park Seed.

Planted the seeds April 24 and am eating some today, June 8th. Haven't staked them yet, but they are lying on a rose bush outside of the raised bed, so it might be about time. Very compact and were the only pea (out of 3) that actually survived to bear fruit in my garden this year with our weird weather. Definitely recommend!
