The pods of snow peas are flatter with small, premature peas inside. This variety produces bright green 4" pods that are crisp and tender with tiny, very sweet peas inside. You can eat the entire pod. Peas can be grown in frost-hardy and cold climates and are rich in protein content. Homegrown peas taste so much better than store-bought.

Snow Pea seeds can be planted directly into the garden.

Sow seed directly into the garden soil in spring after the last frost date. They can also be planted again in late summer for a fall harvest. 

Plant seeds 1” deep and 8” apart. Soak the seed overnight to enhance germination. They should come up in 5-10 days depending on the soil temperature and grow quickly in cool weather.  

Snow peas are short-vining plants and will easily grow up trellises. When you provide support for the 3' vines it will save space and make for easier harvesting. 

Peas love cool weather. In fact, they thrive in it, so allow them to have shade for half of the day. Keep their shallow roots cool with a few inches of mulch. 

Mulch helps to keep the soil temperatures regulated, and conserves moisture as well. Snow peas have delicate root systems that don’t reach very deep beneath the surface of the soil, so be careful when weeding around your plants. 

It's important to regularly pick the young pods because as long as the plant is not overloaded, it will continue to produce blooms that will develop into more pea pods. 

Each packet contains 25 Snow Pea Oregon Sugar Pod II seeds. Pisum sativum. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, Non-GMO. Begin harvesting in 65-70 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 12' row with 25 plants.

Snow Pea leaves and shoots are edible. 

The leaves and mature shoots are edible and can add crunch and a hint of pea flavor to sandwiches when mixed with other salad greens. Young pea shoots are popular as edible sprouts.

 Features.

Snow peas make great additions to various salads, and stir-fried dishes, or served on their own as a vibrant veggie side. This variety is very productive and easy to grow.

Growing peas improves the soil they are grown in. Peas are a member of the legume family and have a mutually beneficial relationship with soil bacteria that give its roots the ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen into a plant-useable form. This is not only great for your peas but if you leave the roots to break down in your garden the nitrogen will release into the soil for your other crops to use.

Benefits. 

Snow peas are high in vitamin C, and are a good source of vitamins A and K as well as iron and magnesium. Eating peas can improve digestion, regulate blood sugar, increase energy, increase bone strength, prevent memory loss, and so much more.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting peas can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.
