Sugar Snap has become a household name in the U.S. since its 1979 introduction. The vines are tall, growing about 6′ or more, and need support. Pods are about 3″ long, 1/2″ across, and bear over a long picking period. Both peas and pods are sweet. Yields well in both hot and cold weather. Remove string from pods before cooking. Sugar snaps take longer than other peas, about 75 days, and they make enormous vines that need serious trellises. But once they get going they bear for well over a month, offering pounds and pounds of easily picked, crisp, juicy, sweet intensely pea-flavored pods that are as the saying goes “ not sold in stores.” .
