Botanical Interests Sugar Snap Pea Seeds
Award winning variety will reward you with delectable, crisp, sweet pods for fresh snacks and meals.
70 days. Snap peas are best eaten fresh and there's nothing like picking them right off the vine. The French call edible podded peas "mange tout" meaning "eat all". Sugar Snap provides an extended harvest of thick and crunchy 3" pods filled with flavorful peas. Vines tolerate some heat. Grow climbing 6' - 8' vines on poles or a trellis.
This packet plants one 7 foot row.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. Soil temperatures must be above 40° F. In USDA zones 8 or warmer, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 - 24 hours before sowing.
Harvesting: Edible pod peas should be picked before the seeds start to form. Peas that are too mature will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest daily. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick pods with the other, as the vines are brittle.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
