Need seed suggestion for snap peas

It's my first year having to use containers. Can you recommend a good snap pea to use? Thanks. :) (I'm thinking ahead to fall.)

I hope one day they come up with a snap pea that will grow in heat! YUM.

RE: Need seed suggestion for snap peas

I planted my peas too late this year, so have them in the shade getting only morning light. They're growing but taking their time. We'll see what happens.

I've got "Mammoth Melting" peas (heirloom), and last year they did quite well. I even had some growing inside! But be sure to plant them with more space than I did (this year they're in a proper planter).

maybe get a couple different varieties and see which one does best?

I think I grew 'Sugar Ann' this year, can't seem to find the packet to verify. I grew a 3x3 foot area of them and had a nice crop.
