‘Swenson Swedish’ Snow Pea Photos for Seed Savers Exchange

Hill Creek Farm is part of Seed Savers Exchange M-GEN program which takes varieties from the Heritage Farm vault and plants them all over the country to see if the heirloom is a “local” variety or has potential in other areas of the country.

We love peas, so we were happy to trial ‘Swenson Swedish” snow peas.  This is a great pea variety for Southeastern PA — it has a sweet taste, it’s prolific and very, very healthy.  We’ll definately be adding it to our crop rotation.

The following photos are the dry pea pods and dry peas.  Seed Savers Exchange will compare the photos from across the country with what was grown at Heritage Farm.
