Very vigorous, these vines are tolerant of Powdery Mildew and Pea Leaf Roll Virus, which makes Super Sugar Snap a good choice for beginning gardeners as well as seasoned vets. Begin your pea season a little sooner and realize incredible yields with this workhorse!
Easy to grow, peas love cold weather, so plant as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Direct-sow 1 to 2 inches apart and 1 to 1? inches deep. Peas are also ideal as a fall crop started in late summer. To conserve space and simplify harvesting, sow in double rows with a trellis between rows.
Be sure to plow under this entire plant after harvesting its big crop of peas. Super Sugar Snap is a legume, so it will help fix nitrogen in the soil. You will see the results of this next season in your garden, when your soil is more loamy, rich, and healthy than ever!
