Pea - Snow
25g = c.80 seeds
Youth, vigour, vitality and very, very tasty. Shiny green pods on waist-high vines, that make sweet snacking for littlies. If any make it to the kitchen then steaming and stir-frying are sensational. If they don’t, sauteed snow pea shoots are quite the delicacy.
Your peas will need supports to cuddle up to, but are very low maintenance. If you planted them in well-prepared beds they won’t need any more feeding but do like a good water weekly after flowering begins. This variety has excellent disease-resistance. Sow some often in spring and autumn. Pick pea pods young and often.
