You’ll enjoy harvesting them as you walk for fresh from the garden treats. Snack Hero peas are highly productive, with multiple juicy, plump pods. They are perfect to grow with kids who love their crunchy sweet flavor.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early to mid-spring, plant peas in full sun in well-worked, fertile soil. Sow 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart. Protect from marauding birds with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Wet, cold early spring weather may affect germination, so if first sowing doesn’t germinate evenly, replant right away: new seedlings catch up quickly. Sow again for a fall crop, several months before fall frosts.

CONTAINERS, BASKETS AND WINDOW BOXES

Plant in containers at least 15-18 inches in diameter and 7-10 inches deep. When seedlings are 2-3 inches long, thin to 3 inches apart, so each little vine has growing room. Mulch to conserve moisture. Feed with all-purpose fertilizer every 2-3 weeks. If it gets hot, check and water containers daily; otherwise, water when the top inch of soil is dry. Water at base of the plants to avoid mildew.

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest only when peas are mature and rounded in the thick-walled, juicy pods for the best developed flavor. Savor their sweet crunch fresh (kids especially love them!) as a snack or slice into salads. To cook quickly, pull strings from pods and sauté in a little oil just until pods turn a deeper green color.
