Grading Sugar Snap Peas from Primo to Awful

I’ve found quite a bit of variation in the quality of seeds harvested from this last grow of Sugar Snap Peas.  Smooth, round and consistent color VS wrinkles, pockmarks and discoloration.  My prize seeds have an appearance of the seed in the upper left (labeled “A”).  And my scale, for this harvesting, goes from Grade A (far left) to Grade E (to the right).  Seeds in a category of sub-par are in the below circle.

Otherwise though my best-looking Grade A seed is growing and I hope to find as many beauties inside the pods when I go to harvest in 8 weeks.  We’ll see if there’s enough time left in this season to grow the seeds.
