Snow Pea (Pisum sativum)
Snow Peas are one of the first crops we sow outdoors and we often plant in early March. Our Oregon Giant variety produces abundant 4" pods that have a crisp and refreshing flavor. Snow Peas should be eaten when the pod is thin for best taste. We grow our snow peas on circular tomato cages and the vines grow 4-5'. Our snow peas often get dusted with snow sometime in March and their name is a testament to the hardiness of this fun garden vegetable.
(Approximately 50 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: sow 1 seed 1" deep every 2" as soon as soil can be worked in spring. No thinning required. Full sun to part-shade. We recommend trellises and tomato cages or bamboo tepees work great!
