57 days. Early maturing heirloom snow pea is grown for pea shoots (32 days) and blossoms (39 days) as well as small crunchy pods. The pods reach about 6.5 cm. in length and are very sweet. Pea shoots and beautiful purple flowers add interest to salads and stir fries and make beautiful garnishes. Dwarf plants reach 45-50 cm. and need no trellising.
