Snap Peas

Sugar Sprint Snap Peas is an early variety that sprints to maturity. They produce numerous 3″ long snap peas over an extended period. It is a versatile variety that grows well in a wide variety of conditions and is suitable for fall gardens as well.

Sugar Sprint has good disease resistance and has great heat tolerance. The prolific pods are stringless and the peas are tender and sweet as you would expect with a good flavor. Snap peas can be eaten straight from the vine or cooked by steaming or stir-frying.

Transplant in a sunny location when the soil temperature is consistently about 40F degrees. Space your transplants 2-6″ apart. If planting rows, space your rows 24-36″ apart. Plants grow 26″ tall. The plants require little to no support.

Sugar Sprint can also be planted in containers. To conserve space in the garden and make for easier harvesting, plant in double rows with a trellis between the rows. Adding a inoculant with rhizobium will increase yields.

Sugar Sprint matures in 62 days. Planting transplants should reduce that to 30-45 days. Pick daily for a continuous harvest.

We grow snap peas in our #4 Charley’s Veggies category (#4 round pots packed 10 per flat).

Be sure to cultivate your pea plants into your soil at the end of the season. They will help adjust the nitrogen in your soil and make for an even better harvest next year.
