It is adapted to all field pea growing regions in western Canada. AAC Comfort has late maturity, medium lodging resistance, medium seed size, round seed shape, and good bleach resistance and green colour intensity. It is resistant to powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe pisi DC., moderately susceptible to mycosphaerella blight caused by Mycosphaerella pinodes (Berk. & Blox.) Vestergr., and susceptible to fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. pisi (Linford) Snyd. & Hans.
