I am growing pea shoots but have seen some where the tendrils are really curly. I want to grow them about 4-6" tall. I have used sugar grey and field pea seeds but the tendrils are fairly straight. I also used snow peas and they weren't ' t that curly. Does anyone know a variety that would give me this look? Thanks!

I think it's the side shoots that are curly, not the top of the plant, or not until it's gotten bigger anyway, if I understand your question right. I picture you growing the plants just a few inches tall then wanting to harvest them, is that right? The shoots you're picturing come from older/bigger plants and if you pinch them back they should get bushy and grow more side shoots, like basil does. I would stick with the sweeter peas, but I've never tried field pea shoots.
