Ratings & Reviews
Per the instructions, I sowed these outdoors directly. All the seeds sprouted, grew fast and were very productive. 2019 was my first year growing peas, and they were easy and tasted good. I intend to plant them again this year (2020).

Not sweet, but I’d grow again
Located in zone 6b. Planted as soon as the soil was workable. Sprouted on time and have grown fantastically. Even now, in 100 degree weather they are still producing well. In our experience, pods aren’t sweet as per the description, but my family likes them still. I’d grow again.
My Favorite in the Garden This Year
This is my first year growing the Amish Snap Pea. They do not disappoint! I have three types of peas in my garden (also Oregon Sugar Pod and Swenson Swedish), and I'd say these are my favorite. They are sweet and crisp and vigorous growers reaching about 5 feet on my trellis. My only issue, keeping them picked so they'll keep producing as they are prolific!
