How Many Times Will Pea Plants Produce Peas?

By Bobbi Keffer ; Updated September 21, 2017
Peas grow in both vining and bush varieties, making it easy to find a planting method that works best for your particular growing needs.

A cooler weather plant, peas will produce continuously from early to later summer with the heat of late summer drying out the plant. Expect about 20 pounds of shelled peas per 100 planted feet for garden peas and 30 pounds of snap or snow pea pods. As an annual plant, pea plants only live for one season.
