How to Grow Sugar Ann Snap 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.

How to Harvest Snap 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.
