This extra-large sugar-sweet Snow Pea has tender, succulent pods that measure 1? wide by 4½? long and produces so prolifically over such a long harvest period that you will begin to wonder if you will ever exhaust your field. Wonderful in salads and braising mixes, this exceptional crop is produced on plants that only grow about 2½ft. tall. This saves growers the problem of trellising their Snow Peas, as is usually the case with most Snow Pea varieties. Oregon Giant is resistant to enation mosaic, common wilt and Powdery Mildew.
