I am in Victoria australia, new house new garden and two plants came up in garden in separate places. I thought when they came up and saw two tone flowers that they were sweet peas. Although much stronger leaves and vines. Looked again today and underneath there are a lot of pea pods. I thought they were normal peas with different colored flowers until I saw the post about these Heirloom snow peas that grow quite large. I opened a pod and seeds inside quite full, so not sure about eating them if they get bigger They either blew here or came in soil mix we brought and put in garden. I do grow normal snow peas these are much stronger. They have been growing there for quite a few months Noticed them about May/June. I was a bit scared to eat them, that is why I started investigating

I grew mammoth melting snow peas from March this year and plants grew 7' high in my own garden. At the school gardens I grew snow peas from Bunnings and only grew about 3-4' high with heaps of peas. I'm going to try Oregon snow peas from seed next year otherwise it will be the Bunnings seedlings in future.

Had a look on the internet and would guess that it is not common in Australia.
