  The performance of six pea varieties were evaluated at Hazara University Dhodihal, Mansehra KPK, and Pakistan in mid of August. The present studies of Six varieties (Climax, Pasan, Rondo, Meteor, Green feast and Sarsabz 980-1) were evaluated for their plant vegetative and reproductive growth (seed germination, days to 50% flowering, plant height, number of branches per plant, number of pods) and physical properties (pod length, pod weight and seed weight) of the peas. The experimental trial was laid out in randomized complete block (RCBD), consisting of 6 treatments (varieties) replicated three times and five selected tagged plants were taken as an experimental unit; the data were collected and analyzed according to standard analytical formula. The results showed the maximum seed germination were found in meteor (90%), the varieties meteor showed that minimum number of days, required to attain 50% flowering, maximum plant height was recorded in climax (92.1cm), maximum number of branches/plant was recorded in meteor (5.4), maximum number of pods was recorded in meteor (14.5), maximum pod weight was recorded in meteor (24.2kg). maximum 100g seed weight was recorded in meteor (19.7g). From research experiments it was concluded that Pea variety Meteor was best showing results for being cultivated in Hazara division.
