Sugar Ann

Pisum sativum

Sugar snap peas are springtime candy, and this very early variety won't make you wait! Sweet 3" pods grow abundantly. Bushy plants do better with some trellis or support, but are still shorter than full vining types.

Succulent edible pods reach maximum sweetness before the pod begins to turn dull and each pea becomes distinct. If left on the vine too long the pods become starchy. For the first harvest always taste multiple pods in different stages of growth to zero in on which ones are the sweetest.

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. Soil Temp: 50-75 F. Days to Sprout: 6-14. Thin To/Mature Plant Spacing: Don't thin. Companions: celery, chicory, radish, turnip, bean, carrot, corn. Seeds/Oz: 110. Seed Wt./100' Row: 6 oz. Yield/100' row: 20 lbs. Days to Harvest: 50-75. Seed Viability: 4-6 years.
