Hardy Annual Oregon Sugar Pod is the most popular snow pea. Its productive, dwarf vines have stringless, edible pods which keeps producing after three pickings! It's tolerant of short hot spells. This pea is great for freezing, for eating fresh, or for adding to stir-fries and salads.
Soil & Water: Peas are not particular about soil, but prefer those with plenty of added organic matter and a pH pf 5.5-6.8. Provide moderate water until bloom, then lower the water rate.
Planting & Growing: Peas perform best in cool weather between 60-75F; growing season may be extended using shade cloth or frost fabrics. Presoak seeds to help prevent disease and to speed germination. Oregon Sugar Pod peas are resistant to pea enation virus, wilt, and powdery mildew.
Harvesting & Storage: Peas are usually ready for harvest about 3 weeks after the flower appears and before peas are fully developed in the pods. This variety is best when the pods are 4" long. Regular picking extends production.

I really enjoyed having these peas in my garden. They were very vigorous and productive. And the pods were great for stir fry and stew.Review by Tom (on 8/27/11)
I've planted these peas the last two years and have been very pleased with their performance. They are very tasty and sweet, not to mention holding quality well in the fridge. They are a compact dwarf variety but still very productive. They seem to tolerate temperatures in the mid eighties to low nineties and remain productive.Review by Steph the Photographer (on 6/20/11)
