Sugar Snap Cascadia is a good early / medium maturity pea with very fleshy round pod.
The plant is resistant to Pea Wilt 1 and Fusarium wilt, and will grow to around 90cm in height, so will need support.
The crisp, sweet green pods which are produced in clusters of pods, are best picked when 8 - 9cm in length.They will remain tender over a longer picking period than many older varieties.
