Catalog Info-Does not Compute
Reviewed By: John V Kjellman (Henniker, NH)
You write 225 seeds is enough for a 15' row, that's one seed every eight-tenth of an inch. Normal planting is every 3-4 inches. The peas themselves, if not planned too close together, are great.

greatest pea ever
Reviewed By: crystal (klamath falls, Or)
I have grown these peas for a few yeas now. My plants produce peas from late june till the end of September. From 1/2 pound of seed I have canned 50 jars of peas and froze 15 gallon size freezer ziplock bags. Plus my five kids love to pick the peas right off the vines and eat them raw.

awesome peas
Reviewed By: Jessica (lonoke, arkansas)
these peas are awesome. This is my first time of having my own garden and i planted about 40 peas and i have 31 pea plants i planted some in 2 week intervals and i already have pea pods out there and do not know how many of them i have but its a good amount. They grow fast and i do believe i am going to have a high amount of them. Will do another review when its time to harvest that way i can tell you how they taste right now i would say the pods are about 2-3 inches long

Very Pleased
Reviewed By: Christina (New Wilmington, PA)
2011 marked my 3rd growing season with Miragreen. The plants produced for months for me, however I also stagger my plantings, planting about 15 seeds each week over the course of a month's time. I found that I tired of picking before the plant stopped producing. Miragreen suits my wants such that as long as Gurneys stock it - I will buy it.

Miragreen peas
Reviewed By: Jeff K (Corry, PA)
Miragreen peas were about 4-5 ft.tall with extra long, full pods. They have an excellent flavor and freeze well. The flavor after freezing still is like fresh-picked. However, I didn't find that they produced for any longer than most peas. I only got about 3 weeks of practical production from the plants. They didn't seem to hold up from the stress of picking.

Update
Reviewed By: Frederick G (Columbia Falls, Montana)
My Miragreen pea vines are now 7 feet high (3' above my 4' poultry netting) and still growing taller with an unbelievable number of pods. The pods start at 2 1/2' and there are hundreds of pods. New flowers and pods are developing each day. One thing for sure; I will not have to bend over to pick peas when they are mature. Hope they taste good but it will be at least one more week before picking the lower ones. Next year I will add 2' to the top of the poultry netting.

About Miragreen Peas
Reviewed By: Frederick G (Columbia Falls, Montana)
Planted 15' of Miragreen peas along the south wall of my garage in Mid-April with a 4' poultry netting for support. Also planted 3' of another type of pea. As of 23 June 2010, the Miragreen pea vines are growing beyond the 4' top of the netting with a few flowers beginning to open. The other pea vines are nearing 3' tall with lots of flowers and pods developing. This is an experiment to see which peas I will grow next year. Hopefully the Miragreen peas will produce all summer as advertised. I will do another review when results are in.

Awesome
Reviewed By: Lori (Lancaster, PA)
We chose this Miragreen variety because of the recommendation to support the vines. That really works and makes for effortless picking. The pods were absolutely gorgeous, consistently producing 9-11 peas per pod...and the taste is sweet and delicious. We had a bad wind and hail storm on Memorial Day which severely damaged the stems and developing pods. So we won't get to see how long they would have produced, but will definitely try again next year!

not even in the ground yet!
Reviewed By: Laura (Douglas, wyoming)
I used a seed starter tray thinking that these would grow a little slower and knowing how cold it still was outside. It is still cold outside and in the 2 weeks since I planted the seeds, most of the plants are now close to 1 1/2 feet tall (pretty big when they are still inside!!). I havent even planted these outside yet but if they are growing this well inside, I cant even imagine how well they will do outside!
