Sugar Daddy Snap Pea Seeds

4.4 out of 5 stars
(5 reviews)
'Sugar Daddy' peas were bred by Dr. Calvin Lamborn, the innovative research director that developed the first edible-podded snap pea, 'Sugar Snap'. However, 'Sugar Daddy' has some big improvements—stringless pods, shorter vines, and improved disease resistance. Slender, 3" pods have a deep green color adding to their appeal. The short plants reach only 24"-30" tall and don't need support; a short fence or trellis will make it easier to find and harvest the crunchy peas, though. Pods can be served fresh by themselves or with dip, or added to give crunch to salads. Add to stir-fries and soups or steam for a delicious vegetable. Resistant to powdery mildew and tolerant to bean leaf roll virus.

Love these peas!

Shorter vines, and better, sweeter peas than others I have tried...... and an excellent success rate with these seeds.

Great germination!

More than 90% germination rate after presoaking the night before (did not wait to sprout before planting). Planted around the week of our last frost in Zone 7b and had peas 6 weeks later. I know these vines are supposed to be shorter but ours are pushing 5 feet and don't seem to be slowing down too much. Harvesting nearly every day and still lots coming. Will be buying again for sure!

Poor germination

Only 1/4 germinated - planted container snap peas at the same time and all but two germinated. Hopefully will have better luck next year.
