Opal Creek Snap Pea (70 days)

The first ever yellow podded snap pea available to grow, bred by Peace Seeds, and named after an old growth forest in Oregon. White flowers turn into slender, pastel lemon pods, growing on robust, 6 foot vines that accept heat well, it was the last of ours to perish in this season trials. Sweet, but not overly so, having a fresh pea taste, perfect for eating raw.

    Glad I Tried It

    I decided to try something new to me...that was a great idea! Opal Creek proved to be a sweet, tender snap, and even without inoculating the seed the plants were vigorous and healthy. I very easily brought in a generous harvest. The plant is still producing at this time.
