I planted Mammoth Melting, Super Snappy, and Super Sugar Snap along with these. These were the best producers and very tasty. They're bush peas, and mine got around 3 feet high.

First time growing snow peas so I have nothing to compare yields, but so far the yield of this pea isn't meeting what I was expecting. The plant has been blooming for over a week now and appears to be slowing the flower production. We did get a bit of hot weather for several days. Not sure if that impacted the amount of flowers. The plant itself is very healthy and the pods do have a good taste to them. Will plant again for a fall crop.

Tall plants, mine got to be almost 4 ft. Lots and lots of large 4 inch pods. Keeping them picked will allow them to set out more flowers. Great tasting as well.
