Mammoth Melting Sugar Pea

SNOW PEAS  Taiwan Sugar

Semi-Pole Type

It's pods are sweet, thick and tender, 4 to 5 inches long. High yielding crop matures a little later on taller vines than Oregon Sugar Pod. Great raw, right out of the garden, as well as stir fried alone or with other vegetables. Approximately 65 - 75 days to maturity.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow directly into the garden as soon as soil is workable from early through mid spring. For continual harvest make successive plantings at 3 week intervals. Sow seeds 2 inches apart 1 to 1 1/2 inches deep.

SPACING: Leave 2 to 2 1/2 feet between rows or slightly closer if limited for space. Can be grown in wide rows sowing seeds 2 inches apart in all directions.

GERMINATION: Completely dependent upon outdoor temperatures and soil warmth. Usually one to two weeks.

Ed's Special Advice

Harvest pods daily as they are most tender and delicious when eaten young with the pods still fairly flat. Provide some string, fence or trellis support to keep vines off the ground and conserve garden space. When possible, plant rows in a north-south direction for best sun exposure and good air circulation. Sow for fall crop in late July.
