Super Sugar Snap produces #1 quality, medium dark green 3-4” (7.6-10 cm) long pods. It is one of our many favorites for taste and tenderness.  A very heavy producer with plump 4" pods.  The vines grow to about 152 cm (60”) and will require staking or a trellis to support both the dark green vines and the abundant peas that will follow.  Sugar Super Snap peas prefer cooler weather.  
These fat, 8 cm (3") dark-green pods are the sweetest of  snap peas. The crunchy pods are excellent for eating cooked or raw. The climbing vines must be trellised and will easily grow 2 m (6') or more in good soil.


Growing Instructions:


Direct sow seeds in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked, or in late summer for a fall crop. Choose a location with full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. Sow seeds 2.5cm (1”) deep and 5-10cm (2-4”) apart in rows spaced 45-60cm (18-24”) apart. Provide support for vining varieties. Keep soil moist and cool to promote germination. Seeds should sprout in 7-14 days. Peas prefer slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer before planting and once more halfway through the growing season. Harvest peas when pods are plump and the peas inside are tender. Regular harvesting encourages more production.
