PEAS Sugar Snap

Edible Pod, Pole

An outstanding edible pod pea. An all-American gold medal winner. Superb, thick, edible pods are crisp, tender and very sweet. Shelled peas are also of excellent quality. Approximately 70 days to maturity.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow directly into the garden as soon as soil is workable in early spring. For continual harvest make successive plantings at 3-week intervals until mid spring. Sow seeds 2 inches apart in rows. Cover with 1 inch of soil.

SPACING: Leave 2 to 2 1/2 feet between rows; slightly closer if limited for space.

GERMINATION: Completely dependent upon outdoor temperatures and soil warmth. Usually 1 to 2 weeks.

Ed's Special Advice

One of the finest edible pod peas ever developed. Very good raw or in salads. For best cooking results stir-fry or steam about 2 minutes. Pods are suitable for freezing but not canning. Strip out string in the pod. Provide string or trellis support when vines are 3 to 6 inches tall. We think this is unquestionably the best of its type.
