Hello, Does anyone know how many times the snowpea plant flowers? Is it for the one season and only once? Or is it several times in the season?

From my experience they flower over several weeks / months therefore producing peas for several weeks / months. As they grow taller they flower more.

Unlike green peas, snow peas only give one crop, although the fruiting might slightly staggered due to individual growth. Once you harvest the last of the crop, you should see the vines starting to die back. Pull it up.
