Snow pea (flat, edible pods). Famous for its sweet, mild flavor. Delicious raw, in stir-fries or cooked “al dente”. Tall, 24-30″ vines bear smooth, 4″ pea pods as long as the weather remains cool. Frost tolerance – good. Companion plants include: beans, corn, carrots, radishes & turnips.
CULTURE: Plant directly in garden soil as soon as soil reaches 50°F.
SOIL: Provide slightly limed soil rich in phosphorus and potassium.
SEED PRODUCTION: Produces self-pollinating flowers with little danger of cross-pollination. Allow peas to dry in pod until they rattle.
DISEASE: Cold, wet, spring weather may rot pea seeds. Cover soil with plastic or wait until rainy weather has passed.
SUGGESTED Individual Portion: 1/4 Cup.
