Snap Pea

65 days — 'Cascadia' is a snap pea variety with pods that have very thick, fleshy walls that are succulent, crisp yet tender, and sweet. These Snap peas are a cross between English peas and snow peas and they are used in the same way as snow peas. That is, you eat to whole pod and do not shell them. Picked while relatively immature, strings are not a problem. However, if they get away from you, no worries; simply snap and de-string them (like green beans) and you will find the pods to still be crispy and sweet. We enjoy them raw in mixed greens salads, or lightly cooked in stir-fry dishes.

'Cascadia' pea plants are short and resistant to pea enation mosaic virus and fusarium wilt race 1. Bred by Dr. James R. Baggett of Oregon State University and released in 1992. Each ounce is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.
