If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I have tried snow peas but the vines grew really, really tall. So I like the Sugar snap types best. I have grown both the Sugar Snap and Super Sugar Snap varieties and both are excellent. But for a shorter growing vine I just love Sugar Lace II. Strange looking vines that set pods like mad.

Thank you, Rita! I love Sugar Snap peas and also do a lot of gardening in pots due to poor soil here in Central FL. I am going to try these this Winter! 65 days to harvest is right up my alley since we typically have short Winters here.
