Pisum sativum

The best variety of sugar snaps to eat whole when peas are round and ripe and pod walls are sweet, thick and juicy – you’ll be tempted to eat them all right off the plants! Super Sugar Snap vines grow 5 feet tall with larger, longer pods than other snap peas, good heat tolerance, plus pea roll and powdery mildew resistance. Tops for vigor, productivity and melt-in-your-mouth sweet taste, Super Sugar Snaps are wonderful eating raw or very quickly cooked.

(Resistant to pea leaf roll & powdery mildew)

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early to mid-spring, plant peas in full sun in well-worked, fertile soil. Sow seeds 1 in. deep and 2 to 3 in. apart in wide rows or bands 3 in. across, spacing the wide rows 2 ft. apart . Provide supports for these 5 ft. vines at planting time. Protect from marauding birds with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Wet and cold early spring weather may affect germination, so if first sowing doesn't germinate evenly, replant right away as new seedlings catch up quickly. Sow again for a fall crop about 2.5 months before the first expected fall frost.

GROWING NOTES

Use netting or wire trellis to support these heavy-bearing vines for easy picking. Turn a sprinkling of bone meal and wood ashes into the soil before planting. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered and mulch to conserve moisture. Water at the base of the plants to avoid mildew.

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest only when peas are mature and round in the thick-walled, juicy pods for best developed flavor. Savor their sweet crunch fresh from the garden (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 colour.
