Snow Pea, Green Beauty (Organic)

Pisum sativum. Green Snow. 60 days.

We were tired of short, bushy snow peas, so when we found this gem from Peace Seeds, we were very excited. Bicolor purple flowers look lovely on vigorous vines that grow up to 8′ tall. The tender, green snow pea pods can grow to 7” and still be delicious. When pods get that big, some develop a pink blush. One of our earliest peas and certainly the most productive. An amazing variety bred by Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds in Corvallis, Oregon.

    Where did you grow this variety? California

    Green Beauty grew alongside Sugar Snap II and Magnolia Blossom, both snap peas. Just as suggested, Green Beauties grew to great lengths and were still delicious, were very productive and grew on sturdy vines. We will grow all three again, but Green Beauty deserves more bed space in our zone 8B northern California foothills garden. The composting vines sprouted seeds all over the place, indicating we needn’t have waited til September to resow: those seedlings are now producing, the first of October. We find many of Adaptive’s seeds are well adapted to growing in our foothills location at 2500′, with first frost at mid-to-late October, and last frost in early to mid-May. Our lows usually do not dip much below 20 degrees.
