Avalanche Snow Pea

High Yields and Giant Pods

Edible, 6 in. long pods are sweet and tender— perfect for salads and stir-fries. Semi-leafless 30 in. plants put more energy into producing pods, giving you higher yields. Plant 2 to 3 rows close together and plants will intertwine, becoming self-supporting. Resistant to fusarium wilt race 1 and powdery mildew. Approx. 59 DAYS.

Seed Counts: A packet of 225 pea seeds sows a 15-ft. row; 1/2 lb. sows a 50-ft. row.

All Gurney's pea seed is now treated.

I'm gardening elsewhere.
