65 days — This is not the edible-podded "snow peas" that you are use to seeing. 'Cascadia' produces pods with very thick, fleshy walls that are succulent, tender and sweet. Picked while relatively immature, strings are not a problem. However, if they get away from you, no worries; simply snap and de-string them (like green beans) and you will find the pods to still be crispy and sweet. We enjoy them raw in mixed greens salads, or lightly cooked in stir-fry dishes.
'Cascadia' pea plants are short and resistant to pea enation mosaic virus and fusarium wilt race 1. Bred by Dr. James R. Baggett
of Oregon State University and released in 1992. Each ounce is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.
