60 days. This is one of the most interesting and delicious snow peas. The extra long, tender pods make it a superlative snacking pea! Green Beauty is nicknamed snow-snap or puffer pea, as the extra large, 7-inch pods are very best when they have begun to swell, like a snap pea. A magnificent purple-flowered snow pea. Bright green pods are sweet and tender, even harvested at their full size of 6-8 inches long. The vigorous vines are productive for a longer season than bush type peas, and the vines reach 6-8 feet tall in ideal conditions. Bred by eminent public-domain plant breeder, Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds. These delicious, tender pods are likely the largest of all. Snow peas are often considered synonymous with Chinese cuisine, but in China this type of pea is referred to as “Dutch Peas,” as they consider them a European specialty vegetable that now has become a standard in modern China.
