I grew Cascadia snap peas both last fall and this spring. A nice height, not really short but not tall vines either that did not need a lot of support. A good all around snap pea.

Cascadia is the most reliable snap pea I've grown. An excellent "main crop" pea.

65 DTM. Short bush.
Pods have thick, fleshy walls.
Pick often to encourage more pods, but older pods do remain crisp and sweet
