Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Mammoth Melting Sugar Pea
Pisum sativum var sativum Mammoth Melting Sugar (70 days)
Sweet, sugary and tender this edible pod snow pea has made its place in home gardens for many years. Wilt resistant vines can grow 5' tall and bear heavy yields. These pea pods are some of the biggest at 4-5" and making an excellent addition to stir fry. Big white flowers are a bonus as they quickly turn into tasty peas. This pea has been so successful it has been considered a commercial variety for generations.
TIP Instead of building a trellis this year for your peas which costs money and uses valuable resources, try planting Cayuse oats instead as a trellis. This will not only produce oats and build biomass in your garden, but it will give your peas something to climb on. Cayuse grows 6' tall and will make an excellent living trellis. Almost like the Indians using corn as a trellis for beans!
