Description

Peas

Sugar snap peas are one of the peak pleasures of spring and summer gardening. Unlike flatter snow peas or starchy exterior of shelling peas, the edible pods of sugar snap peas are sweet and crunchy, revealing full-sized, tender peas within. Sugar snap peas have a relatively short growing season which starts in early spring and wraps up by late summer, with an optional early fall window for some locations. While young pea plants can survive a final frost or light snow, an unexpected week of extreme cold or soggy soil from snowmelt might derail the patch, requiring a round of replanting.
