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.
