What are some good pea varieties for the home garden?

Answer: 

Suggested garden pea cultivars for home gardens in Iowa include ‘Little Marvel’ (early season, short vines), ‘Spring’ (early season, short vines), ‘Knight’ (early season, short vines), ‘Lincoln’ (mid to late season, very sweet), ‘Green Arrow’ (mid to late season, 24 to 28 inch vines), and ‘Wando’ (mid to late season, heat tolerant).  ‘Oregon Giant’ (mid to late season, large pods), ‘Snowflake’ (late season, flat pods), and ‘Super Sugar Pod’ (late season, long vines) are excellent snow pea varieties, while ‘Sugar Ann’ (early season, short vines), ‘Sugar Bon’ (early season, short vines), ‘Sugar Sprint’ (early to mid-season, short vines), ‘Cascadia’ (mid-season, short vines), and ‘Super Snappy’ (mid-season, large pods) are good snap peas.
