The Sugar Snap Pea Plant is a prolific producer that is easy to grow. The peas and pods from this heirloom variety are sweet and crunchy and can be eaten raw or cooked. Harvest peas throughout the growing season when the pods are tender and medium green in color. The peas inside the pod should just be starting to swell. This plant has a climbing growth habit and needs a trellis or support.
Sugar Snap Pea Plant Care
Plant Sugar Snap Peas in the spring. Space the plants 8 inches apart and provide a support or a trellis for the reaching vines to grow on. The soil should be neutral, rich, and well drained. This fast-growing plant needs full sun to thrive.
Growing Sugar Snap Pea Plant
Peas are ready to pick in 42 - 58 days. The plants will reach 4 to 6 feet tall and 8 to 10 inches wide. Sugar Snap Pea Plants are fast growing and will quickly latch onto a support and put on height.
Sugar Snap Pea Plants make wonderful container plants. Potted pea plants still need a trellis or support and may require more frequent watering. Use a pot that is 12 inches wide and has ample drainage.
Watering Sugar Snap Pea Plant
Water Sugar Snap Pea Plants to keep the soil moist. This plant performs best with consistent water; while it does not like to be soggy, it does like damp conditions.
Feeding Sugar Snap Pea Plant
Feeding the plants ensures healthy growth and an abundant harvest. Apply a layer of organic compost around the base of the plant and use a balanced formula for veggies or a 15-30-15 fertilizer every few weeks.
