Sugar Daddy Snap Pea Seeds

3.9 out of 5 stars
(10 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!

5 out of 5 stars May 20, 2020
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.

tasty little peas

I love eating the harvest while I'm out in the garden and these little peas are just delicious. The plants produce abundant fruit over a long period of time. Just what I was looking for.

Great tasting and prolific!

5 out of 5 stars Mar 27, 2022
These were the best tasting, most successful, and most prolific sugar snap peas I have ever grown. Germination was excellent (100% germinated). I'm glad I grew them on a trellis because they easily reached 4-5 feet tall! Loaded with sweet tasting peas. Will definitely grow again.

I germinated ten of the seeds in a paper towel then planted them in my containers but they never grew. So germinated another ten same result did I do any thing wrong?

No germination

1 out of 5 stars Mar 8, 2023
I planted these at the same time as I planted some snow peas. The snow peas are up but no snap peas. I soaked them both overnight. Is this the problem? I also gave half the packet to a friend and hers sprouted.
Gerri from AL
Owner Response: Hi Gerri, We are very sorry to hear about the germination results you had with our seeds. A sample of all of our seed is tested for germination rate prior to packaging to ensure that our customers are receiving the freshest seed that is showing germination results that meet federal standards. I'm glad to hear that your friend saw great germination rates with the other half of the seed packet. It is important to make sure your soil is consistently moist during the germination and ensure temperatures are ideal; at least 40 degrees F, ideally 60.
