Snow Pea - Pisello Rampicante Gigante Svizzero / Carouby (105-1)

$4.50

Also called Carouby and Taccola Gigante, this is a climbing pea Mangiatutto ("Eat it all" - Edible pod pea). A real gourmet treat. Old French variety. Flat, slightly curved pods which are incredibly sweet. Classified as a snow pea, but not at all like Chinese snow peas. Matures in 65- 70 days. Pick when the peas have just started to swell for best taste. Very long harvest period, and they hold better than snow peas. Regular packet is about 2 ounces, contains approximately 200 seeds. 100 gram packet has about 400 seeds. Approximately 4-5 seeds per gram.

I've never had snow peas produce and look lovely the whole time as these. They germinated quickly, grew fast and lush and produced better than other peas I've tried. Can't wait to grow them again. I agree with others that if you leave them past their prime they aren't useful, but I grow them particularly to use in Moo Goo Gai Pan and they didn't disappoint.

Second time growing these and they produce like crazy but you absolutely cannot pick these large as they become inedible. Smaller they aren't very sweet. I'll stick with sugar snaps and will not grow this again.

These plants grew well in our spring here In ca but produced inedible peas. I may try these in the fall and see if they perform any better.
