60-70 days. Pisum sativum Non-GMO. Heirloom. Sweet, sugary and tender this edible pod snow pea has made its place in home gardens for many years. Wilt resistant vines can grow 5' tall and bear heavy yields. These pea pods are some of the biggest at 4-5" and making an excellent addition to stir fry. Big white flowers are a bonus as they quickly turn into tasty peas. This pea has been so successful it has been considered a commercial variety for generations. ~90 seeds per oz.
How to Grow Mammoth Melting Sugar Snow Pea from Seed
Pea is ideally suited for direct full sun outdoor sowing as soon as the soil can be worked after the final spring frost. Pea may also be planted at the end of summer for a quick fall harvest. Sow 1‚¬ deep and 1-2‚¬ apart in organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Peas can be soaked 4-6 hours in warm water prior to sowing to help germination. Seeds germinate in 7-14 days, thinning out strongest starts to 6-9‚¬ apart as true leaves establish. Whether growing English shelling, Chinese snow, or sugar snap, pea cultivation is fairly universal.
TIP: Instead of building a trellis this year for your peas which costs money and uses valuable resources, try planting oats instead as a trellis. This will not only produce oats and build biomass in your garden, but it will give your peas something to climb on. Cayuse grows 6' tall and will make an excellent living trellis.
How to Harvest Sugar Snow Peas
Most varieties of pea are ready for harvest 60-70 days from sowing. Know the variety you are planting because each will have different signs of ripeness. English shelling peas are the most traditional, having a fibrous, inedible shell and are the fastest to maturity. Sugar snap is the next to mature and has a fibrous, but deliciously edible pod. Snow pea takes the longest to mature and has small seeds and flat, edible pods most notably used in Asian cuisine. Pea pods are sweetest when 2-3‚¬ long and should be carefully cut from vine rather than twisted or pulled.
Culinary Uses for Mammoth Melting Sugar Pea
Unlike snow peas that are flat, these sugar snap peas are plump. Eat the edible bright-green 3‚¬ pods raw as a sweet treat or cook them as a sauteed dish with butter, garlic and seasoning, similar to how you would enjoy edamame! Sugar Ann Snap Pea also makes a perfect addition to pastas, salads or stir fries, as this early variety is sweeter than others and stringless.
