Snow Peas Sensitive to Heat

garyhd added on July 7, 2012 | Answered

I had snow peas growing on the patio in southern Arizona. They grew tall and actually 1 plant produced a pod then suddenly they all dried up. Are they sensitive to heat in excess of 100? They're getting about 2-3 hrs direct sun and rest of day shaded but hot!! Over 100 every day for 5 weeks.

Peas are a cool weather plant. They do not do well in high heat and will die prematurely in that kind of heat. I would recommend looking at growing peas in the fall or even winter in your area.
