An AAS winner from 1979. The delicious, tender pods are great raw (eaten before you ever leave the garden), stir-fried, or in salads. Sugar Snap Peas also freeze well. (60-70 days)
All garden peas require mild weather to grow their best. May be sown in the spring, 1/2 to 1 inch deep and several inches apart in all directions, several weeks before the last frost date. Most pea varieties need support, such as a trellis, net, fence, etc.
Try to time your garden so the plants mature a full crop before the arrival of really hot weather. For fall planting, sow seeds in late summer two months before the first frost date of autumn.
