Pea Seeds - Oregon Sugar Pod II - Organic

Scott Meyer at Organic says about Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea...
"Researchers in Alabama, Oregon and Florida grew a bunch of different snow pea varieties side-by-side, harvested the pods, weighed them and came up with some nicely consistent results: In all three locations, 'Oregon Sugar Pod' (or its more disease-resistant variation, 'Oregon Sugar Pod II') yielded the most pounds of pods. In the state for which it is named, 'Oregon Sugar Pod' produced 8.1 pounds of peas per 12 foot row vs. the 5.1 pounds produced by its closest competitor. In the other two trials, OSP or OSP II outyielded the other varieties by at least 20 percent. The reason for this extraordinary output, explains James Baggett, Ph.D., of Oregon State University, breeder of the productive peas, is that most snowpea plants produce one pod at each "growth node," but the two 'Oregon Sugar Pod' varieties produce two pods per node."
