70 days. Snap peas are best eaten fresh and there’s nothing like picking them right off the vine. The French call edible podded peas “mange tout” meaning “eat all”. Sugar Snap provides an extended harvest of thick and crunchy 3" pods filled with flavorful peas. Vines tolerate some heat. Grow climbing 6' - 8' vines on poles or a trellis.

This packet sows one 7-foot row.

5-10 days

1"

2"

18"

Do not thin


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. Soil temperatures must be above 40°F. In USDA zones 8 or warmer, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 - 24 hours before sowing.

Harvesting: Edible pod peas should be picked before the seeds start to form. Peas that are too mature will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest daily. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick pods with the other, as the vines are brittle.
