70 days — 'Oregon Giant' snow pea plants grow up to about three feet tall, start producing early in the season, and continue well into the gardening season. They are very productive with pods that are flat, four to five inches long, and sweet. The peas are wrinkled seeded.

Bred by Dr. James Baggett of Oregon State University and their pea improvement program that began in 1954. 'Oregon Giant' was stabilized from a cross between 'Oregon Sugar Pod II' and 'Sugar Snap'[1] and released in 1991. Like many of the introductions from this program, 'Oregon Giant' is resistant to pea enation mosaic virus (PEMV), powdery mildew, and fusarium wilt race 1.[1,2] Each ounce is approximately 100 seeds, which is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.
