Cascadia or Sugar Snap Peas?

12 years ago

Or maybe other varieties?

In Central Illinois - looking for a good snap pea that has edible pods.

I got some Super Sugar Snap peas from Burpee this year and also used some regular Sugar Snap peas from FedCo this year. The Sugar Snap peas seemed to produce better - and have much better germination rates - than the Super Sugar Snap peas.

FedCo has "Cascadia" peas. It seems these are a short variety that grow up to three feet tall. Does anyone have any experience with this variety and whether it is just as productive as the Sugar Snap pea variety? How about flavors?

Looking to figure out what seed orders I am going to place this year.

Thank you all.
