In my small NW Arkansas garden with mostly clay-like soil, these peas did terrific! We found ourselves eating these straight off the vine before we could get them inside. They grow tall (5ft or so) and need good spacing to climb without choking each other out, but they were wonderfully full & sweet! I highly recommend them!
