Cascadia Snap Pea Seeds (Organic)

Cascadia Snap Pea Seeds (Organic)

Snap to Freshness

The Cascadia Snap Pea, a cultivar of Pisum sativum, is a productive and hardy addition to any vegetable garden. Originating from selective breeding, this variety is distinguished by its climbing growth habit and ability to thrive in a range of temperate conditions. The plant typically reaches a height of 2-3 feet, requiring trellising or support for optimal growth. Its foliage is dense and deep green, producing white flowers that develop into plump, edible pods.

These snap peas are notable for their crisp texture and sweet flavor, making them a preferred choice for both raw consumption and cooked dishes. They are best planted in early spring or late summer, in well-drained soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.5. Cascadia Snap Peas flourish in full to partial sunlight and prefer cooler growing conditions.

Harvesting these peas at the right time is crucial for maximizing their taste and nutritional value. Pods should be picked when they are plump, yet before the peas inside fully mature. Regular harvesting encourages the plant to produce more pods, extending the yield period. This variety's resilience and ease of cultivation make it a suitable choice for both novice and experienced gardeners, providing a steady supply of fresh, flavorful peas throughout the growing season.
