What's so special about our Snow Pea?
Our Snow Peas plants a lot and can be harvested for weeks and weeks.
They’re tastiest when harvested young, but if you leave the pods hanging too long, you can always store them: they stay delicious.
Oh yeah, and did I mention kids love them?
Sowing and growing
Sow Snow Peas in early spring. They grow easily, produce a lot and don’t attract bugs or disease. But watch out for birds: they love the sprouted seeds and seedlings, especially in early spring.
For the tastiest result, harvest the pods before the peas get too thick.
You can also sow again in August. It’s not as foolproof as early spring sowing, but it’s definitely worth a try.
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.
What do you do with them?
First, remove any stringy strands before use.
You can eat Snow Peas in many dishes. Cook or stew them briefly, and toss them in a stir-fry or in scrambled eggs with salmon: delicious!
