The original Sugar Snap Pea, the 1979 AAS Winner was later voted the #1 vegetable of all time! The best flavored snap pea ever. Fat 3-in. pods on tall, 6 to 8-ft. vines are superb when eaten fresh or cooked. Produces huge crops in both cold and hot weather over a long picking period. Tolerant of pea wilt but lacks mildew resistance. Needs support.

Sugar Snap Pea Seeds
Peas are a cool-weather crop. Midsummer pickings are not as prolific as earlier harvests. In early spring as soon as the soil can be worked, sow 1 1/2-2" apart in rows 18-36" apart, 1/2-1" deep. Do not thin. Varieties under 3' tall can be sown without support in rows 12-18" apart. For taller varieties, use crop supports such as a trellis net or chicken wire to keep vines upright, easy to pick and off the ground where they are less likely to rot if rainy weather coincides with harvest. Suspend the bottom of the trellis or chicken wire just above the young plants. The best time to install a trellis is at planting time. Normal row spacing is 4-6' for trellised peas. Harvest when peas enlarge in the pods.
