Sugar Ann Snap Pea - Bush Type
This pea has 24 - 30” vines that need no support, medium green 2 - 3” round blunt pods with 7 peas per pod. Similar to the Sugar Snap pea but 14 days earlier. These sweet pods freeze well.
Heirloom peas or garden peas originated in middle Asia, from northwest India through Afghanistan and adjacent areas. A second area of development lies in the Near East, and a third includes the plateau and mountains of Ethiopia.
Heirloom peas were one of the most widely grown vegetables of northern Europe during the Middle ages, as their description and cultivation was evident in almost every early gardening or agricultural book of any language in middle and northern Europe.
Green peas are used fresh, cooked, frozen or canned. Dry peas are cooked whole or split.
The most important thing to know about growing peas is that they cannot stand hot weather. If you live in a warm climate, fall and even winter planting can be fine. Some southern gardeners sow in fall and let the seeds lie dormant in winter so that they can sprout as early as possible in the spring in order to beat the heat. Remember peas can be planted in early spring and be one of your first crops producing.

These do what they're supposed to do. Taste good too. I share with my dog right off the vine.
These snaps are amazing! I had a hard time getting my kids not to eat them all right off the vine. I strongly recommend these. They have a very sweet taste. seem to do better when they have something to grow up like a trellis but isn't necessary. Thanks, Terroir Seeds!
This sugar snap is so good I had a really hard time saving the seeds for next year. So... I will have to order more. My kids would munch all day on these as they played in the back yard. Definitely a great variety. I strongly recommend this pea.
