Pea Snow Oregon Sugar Pod II Organic Seeds

Pisum sativum

Item #3072

60 days. Oregon Sugar Pod II produces a huge number of 4" delicious pods that are harvested and eaten when the pods are flat, before the seed forms. This is one of those vegetables that tastes much better homegrown than from a store. Short, 28" vines, easy to manage. Resists mildew, pea virus, and common wilt. Excellent freezer variety. Grow on a trellis.

This packet sows three 7-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1"

Seed Spacing:
2" (yes, 2")

Row Spacing:
18"

Thinning:
Not required


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as soil can be worked. Soil temperature 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 to 24 hours before sowing.

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