An All-America Selections award winner, 'Sugar Snap' provides an extended harvest of thick, crunchy 3" pods filled with flavorful peas. Vines tolerate some heat. Grow climbing 6'–8' vines on poles or a trellis.

These pea plants grew well over six feet tall. The plants produced wonderful sweet tasting pea pods. I used scissors to pick the pea pods. As long as the weather was cool the plants produced pea pods. I followed the good directions on the package.

Germination rates are incredible!

I found a seed packet in a drawer from Botanical Interests in my house. The packet looked incredibly old, but I planted some seeds in my garden! Amazingly, the seeds germinated! I can't believe the packet was still viable after all this time. It could well be over 5 years old! The germination rates with Botanical Interests are amazing. Will plant again!

Bountiful, mine top 9' tall and continue to get bushier with new long shoots as they are picked. It is an on going issue to support the new growth. After months of growth, reasonable containment eludes me. Great edible peas.

These guys were so fun and easy to grow! My one year old loved helping sow the seeds, water and watch them spring up. The pea pods are so sweet and delightfully crunchy. I can't wait to grow these again. By the way they do wonderfully in containers.

These are the sweetest, most flavorful and prolific peas, We have been enjoying these daily. If you can wait until they get bigger; they can get really large and it only takes three or four for a great snack! We have an AirBnB and our guests have been coming over to the garden and "borrowing" our Sugar Snap Peas!

Very disappointed...

I have used these seeds for years with good results. However, this year, MAYBE 25% of the seeds germinated. I planted them as I always have and soaked them in water overnight prior to planting. They just didn't grow this year.
