Pea Sweet Horizon is a high quality snow pea that produces a very heavy yield of mange tout pods typically 9 - 10cm long. The plant has a vigorous habit and is resistant to mildew.
This is the variety used for producing the pods like you buy in the supermarket, except taste the difference when you grow your own. Great in salads and stir-frys.
Sow seeds in 2 or 3 batches at intervals during the growing season to ensure a continuous supply of young mange tout pods.
