Snap Pea Seeds - Sugar Snap
68 days. Sugar Snap Peas are perhaps the premier snap pea. Tall 5-7 foot plants produce delectable pods. For the best flavour and sweetness allow the pods to fill out completely.
Timing: Prefers cool temperatures and will withstand light frost. Can be planted outside as soon as ground unfrozen.
Seeding: Sow one seed per inch in double rows 3-6 inches apart with 24 inches before the next double row. Plant seed 1 inch deep. Seeds planted in cold, wet soil may not germinate well without inoculant.
Growing: Peas are light feeders. They need well drained soil and will do better if they have something to grow on.
Harvesting: Pick shelling peas once pods have filled out and are bright green.
