Peas are a cool weather crop and can be sown from early April through to mid-May when the soil temperature is between 10-16C (50-60F)
Representing a new generation of garden peas, Sugar Snap is a winner of the prestigious All American Selections Gold Medal. Crisp, crunchy and delicious, it’s eaten whole – pods and peas – when the pods are plump and round. Serve fresh in salads, with dip, stir fried or steamed. Good for freezing. Grows best in cool weather. The 4ft (120cm) tall vines are best supported on a trellis or fence. One of the best general purpose peas available.

Fall crops are possible in hardiness zones 6 and 7. Sow in double rows or blocks. Sow successive crops 10-14 days apart for extended harvests. Keep soil evenly moist during the germination period or emergence will be spotty. Once flowering starts, it is important to keep the plants well-watered to produce a good harvest. As the pods mature, pick daily to enjoy their peak flavour and to encourage more pods to form.
