Little Marvel

Pisum sativum

HEIRLOOM Imagine these peas wearing little superhero capes, dashing into the garden with early and steady production! Dwarf plants grow 15-20" with high yields of 3" tasty pods.

Also called garden, shelling or English peas; these are left on the plant until the pod fills out completely. Then they are removed from the fibrous, inedible pod and lightly cooked.

Snow/snap peas (edible pod) and shelling peas are frost-tolerant, cool weather crops that are planted early spring and late summer in full sun. Most garden peas are more productive and all are easier to harvest if given a fence or trellis to climb. Harvest snow/snap peas when pods are still tender and peas are immature. Harvest shelling peas when pods are fully fleshed out. When in doubt, taste pods in different stages of maturity to determine best flavor. Plant Seeds: 1/2" deep with 2" between seeds.
