This variety performs well here. It is a later-maturing variety at 60 days, but stands up to 90-degree temps reasonably well. Better than Sabre and Premium. Nice long pods are easy to shell, and the peas have good flavor. Green Arrow is slightly better, pod size and production, but this one is good.
