Sugar snaps are the timeless classic, the perennial favorite and we agree, homegrown goodness just doesn’t get any better than this. 50 seeds
Organic Sugar Snap Pea is a full-size, 5-foot variety and here’s how to enjoy snap peas for 6 weeks straight: sow both compact and full-size peas on the same date, in early spring, once the snow melts. The compact varieties flower and fruit many weeks before the full-size varieties do, their production waning just as the full-size peas come on. It’s a simple strategy, brilliant and delicious!
Direct Sow Only: As soon as soil may be worked, sow 1-1.5″ apart, 1″ deep & do not thin. Dwarf peas ideal for 2 gallon containers & (optional) trellis is helpful. Fall plantings are best with dwarves (rather than full-size varieties) sown early/mid-August. Pick frequently to increase harvest.
