Climate versus vegetables

Round-seeded peas (as opposed to wrinkle-seeded ones) are for autumn sowing as they are hardier - however I don't know whether they're hardy enough for the temperatures Gardenviking mentions.

My thoughts about the variety Douce de Provence are that I imagine it originates in the south of France, and what may be hardy in Provence may not be hardy a lot further north.
