Homegrown peas taste so much better than store bought! 'Oregon Sugar Pod II' produces a huge number of 4" delicious pods that are harvested and eaten when the pods are flat, before the seeds form. Short, 28" vines are easy to manage. Resists mildew, pea enation virus, and leaf roll. Excellent freezer and late-summer variety. Grow on a trellis.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°–80°F and again 10 to 12 weeks before your average first frost date. In Mild Climates, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest. Best grown in temperatures less than 85°F.

Harvesting: Snow peas should be picked before the seeds start to form.

Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick the pods with the other; vines are fragile

Oregon Sugar Pod II Snow Pea Seeds

5 out of 5 stars Apr 13, 2019
I sowed around 30-40 seeds on January 26th and harvested my first bunch on April 11th. The seeds had a high germination rate and emerged after 11 days. The plants were very low maintenance, requiring little care and watering. The tallest plant is pushing 6 feet so trellising of some form is necessary. The pea pods taste much better than store bought and are very tender. It is too early to be certain, but it appears that the plants will yield a single serving every couple of days.

Great beans!

We really enjoyed the proliferate growth of these tender beans for the vast majority of the summer. They tolerated an unusually wet, cold IL spring this year and I expect they'll do even better in a more usual spring!

Great Pea Pods

5 out of 5 stars Mar 19, 2020
I grew these spring/fall 2019. Great germination, sweetness & overall flavor increases as pods get larger. For spring, I sowed these outside with a little Burpee's Pea/Bean Booster. I decided to transplant some to a different location & all of them survived & did well. For fall, I started these in containers & transplanted them into the garden. All did great. I didn't use peat pots. I used recycled 32 ounce Tazo tea, soy/almond/cashew milk containers along with 6 inch high nursery pots. We loved these sugar peas so much, I'm only using Oregon 2 peas this year. They out did all our others in abundance & flavor.

Taller Than Description

2 out of 5 stars Jun 20, 2020
I was expecting around 30" size pea plants. These were at least 4 feet tall. Some were almost 5'. Very disappointed in the amount of peas. Most of the peas sprouted (I used a bean/pea booster) and grew very well. I also sowed a different company's pea seeds (also Oregon 2) which grew to around 30" tall & are very prolific. I've been using/comparing different seed companies for my own benefit, so I know what grows the best from which company. I have used several Botanical Interests seeds which I have been very happy with, but these peas are not something I would use again. Not only are the plants very tall, they have very few peas on them and some of the plants are English peas. I have the plants clearly marked with what they are & what company, so there's no mistakes.

Great variety

5 out of 5 stars Jul 8, 2022
Purchased 1 packet of the organic sugar pod II. Sowed all seeds in a row in early April and they came up great, grew about 5 feet tall and produced a ton of peas. Produced better and lasted longer into the heat of summer than other pea varieties I planted. Will be planting a larger row of these next year!
