HOW TO GROW PEA

Cool weather crop, direct sow in 4–8” wide trench 1 to 1.5” deep in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, space 1 to 1-1/2”. When frogs start croaking the soil is warm enough to plant peas. For early spring and dry fall sowings, presoak in water in large open bowl or bucket until peas are swollen and radical (1 cm root) is visible but has not broken free. Replace water 2-3 times daily and stir frequently for enough oxygen, mix seed with enough dry soil to dry and easy to handle. Trellis varieties over 3’ tall. Set trellis net or chicken wire on poles 6’ apart. Successional crops, sow peas every 10–14 days. Sandy well drained soils are best. Pick all pods at harvest to encourage new pea growth. Soil pH 6-7.5. Hardiness zones 5. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 115-140 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard: 80%. Pea seed will retain 50% viability for 3 years when stored in cool, dry, dark, conditions. Isolation distance for seed saving: 50 feet.

Soil Temp. Germ. 45-75˚F
Days to Germ. 7–10
Plant Spacing 2–3”
Row Spacing 18–14”
Days To Maturity 55–65

Sugar Snap has become a household name in the U.S. since its 1979 introduction. Many prefer the flavor of the this original to varieties such as Super Sugar Snap and Cascadia. The vines are tall, growing about 6' or more, and need support. Pods are about 3" long, 1/2" across and bear over a long picking period. Delicious, tender pods are great raw, stir-fried or in salads. Can also be used as a shell pea, yields over an extended 4-6 week period if kept picked clean. Serve fresh in salads, with dip, steamed or stir fried. Freezes well. Yields well in both hot and cold weather. Remove string from pods before cooking. All American Selection winner from the same breeders as Sugar Ann. The original Sugar Snap is susceptible to powdery mildew and some off-types that produce edible snow peas rather than snap peas but many are willing to put up with that to get the taste. Also see Super Sugar Snap and Sugar Ann peas. Tags: Type: Sugar Snap, Harvest: Early, Color: Green, Season: Spring Fall.
