Item Details

A sweet and flavorful snowpea, this variety is a productive, vigorous climber. The pea came to Seed Savers Exchange from Charles Swenson. His grandfather brought the variety to Minnesota from Sweden in 1876. Charles says the peas are typically harvested while still flat, then cut into ¼" pieces and creamed to make a traditional Scandinavian dish. Edible-podded, 70 days.
