I goggled and found related common name in Hormozgan too.
It is speculated that the name comes from the whitish tint reflected from the pods. It also may come because of their tendency to grow at the end of winter, just before the last spring freeze. They can be covered with snow - hence the name - during these times, but still keep growing well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_pea
