The pods are slender and elegant and tend to stick out a bit rather than growing straight downwards. The surface is smooth and silky and the flesh translucent, starting off a bright lemon yellow and turning a more muted creamy yellow as they increase in size.
I found the pods slightly smaller than other sugarsnaps, long and slender rather than short and fat. But they produced the nice thick crunchy pod walls you'd expect, and the flavour is on the mild side but sweet and juicy. The yellow colour is retained when cooked, but the beautiful pods are probably better appreciated raw in salads. I didn't try eating the peas themselves as it's very much geared for use as an edible-podded variety, but if you do allow them to mature you get about seven or eight in a pod.
Opal Creek apparently also has very sweet edible leaves, especially the small leaves around the stem. But I didn't get round to trying this.
A very nice variety which I'll certainly grow again.
