peas with white leaves

This is my first POST!
So I tried growing super sugar snap peas last year but I think the heat here in Denver got the best of them.

This year they are off to a great start! The only concern I have is the leaves are turning speckled white with some of the bigger ones starting to turn all white. They did the same last year and I'm afraid I might lose the peas before they produce fruit. It doesn't look like mildew to me, nothing on the surface.

Any help/expertise is greatly appreciated!

I haven't had experience of those large white patches but the rest of the speckling looks normal. Maybe the variety you are growing just has larger blotches.

RE: peas with white leaves

I'd suggest planting earlier. Farmer's Almanac says you can plant in early April in Denver. Peas don't mind cooler soil and I usually plant in February here if I can. My last frost date is about April 15. I think I planted on or about March 1 this year and I'm done with them now. I realize Denver is colder than we are here, but the same principle applies. Looks like you're about 2 weeks behind us with average last frost dates, so you should be able to get away with planting in March, I would think. If you can break ground then.
