Super sugarsnap peas

How super are Super Sugarsnap Peas?

Germination in cold garden soil was mediocre and some vines are succumbing to fusarium wilt just like every other year.

But yields are tremendous and the sweet pods are delicious. It's hard to complain about sugarsnap peas.

I thought about trying the Super Sugar Snaps from Johnny's this year because they were out of the regular sugar snaps. Then I happened to be in Walmart one day and thought what the heck I'll just get their Ferry-Morse ones. Big mistake. They turned out to be some kind of flat-podded snow pea (but the pod is very fibrous and inedible). The vines and leaves are turning yellow and are looking pretty rough. Going to google fusarium wilt, maybe that's what's wrong with them. Looks like I'll be getting sugar snaps from the Mennonites this year! Thanks for a review of this variety.
