In this study, peas were planted according to the map. Product management was done completely from planting to mature period and harvest time. Plant to plant distance in row, was determined 5, 7 and 9 cm and row distance was selected 30, 40 and 50 cm. For measuring pea dimensions, 15 peas were selected randomly from pods. All process was repeated three times for all levels and data were analyzed by using of completely randomized design (CRD) and SAS software. The effect of seed spacing in row was significant on length, width, geometric diameter, arithmetic diameter, cross sectional area, mass, actual volume and bulk volume at the level of 5% (P<5%) and thickness at the level of 1% (P<1%). But it was not significant on lateral surface and sphericity ratio. Also the effect of row distance and interaction effect of seed spacing in row and row distance were not significant in any case.
