Pole Peas - Sugar Snap
All-America Gold Medal Winner, many consider the best flavored of all the edible pod peas. Young thick edible pods are crisp and sweet. Used raw or in salads as well as frozen or cooked. Strings in pods should be stripped out. Shelled peas from more mature pods are also of excellent quality.
Pole peas require support using string, netting, trellis or fence. To save space, plant in 2 rows 6 inches apart with support between them. Make successive plantings every 3 weeks for continuous harvest.
