Opal Creek Snap Pea (70 Days)

2 reviews

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.

 

1 Ounce = 170-190 seeds

Tips- Adding inoculant with rhizobium bacteria will increase yields. Varieties with vine lengths over 3 feet require support.

    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.
