Grew like crazy and good flavor

These are a great grower, bountiful and flavorful.

My favorite for years

Sorry Territorial Seed, I just looked at my planting notes and saw what I thought were my Super Sugar Snaps were actually the Nairobi that I had tried this year. You may delete my 2 star review if you like. The Super Sugar Snaps grew to their normal height. They aren't as productive as normal, but I am blaming that more on the weather (and possibly even the smoke) this year. These are my Corgi's favorites! She won't go back in the house without getting her treat of a pea pod when they are producing!

Didn't grow like normal

Super Sugar Snap has been my favorite for years. This year I thought I would also try Nairobi. They were planted at the same time, same place and conditions. The Nairobi grew to the top of my trellis, while the Super Sugar Snaps stayed very short. We have been in a drought, but they have been watered regularly. I have grown my peas in straw bales for the last several years and have always had good luck. This year I even got them started at the optimal time which sometimes I don't do and I will still get good growth on them. I'm not sure what happened this year. I am curious if anybody else had this issue with their Super Sugar Snaps.

Hope it was the weather

Grew these snap peas in a raised bed in west-central MN. They germinated quickly and grew uniformly. Almost all of the peas were contained on the top third to quarter of the vines which made for easy picking. I planted on May 18. I like to eat them whole right off the vine and my partner likes to shell them and eat the peas. Early peas were delicious both ways. As the summer progressed, we found that many of the pods were empty or had only one pea that developed although the pods looked and felt ripe. Often I would bite into a pod and find that although the walls were developed and juicy, it was bare of peas or even the beginning of peas. Our weather got really hot for this area in early to mid-July - right around 90 degrees with 60 degree nights - which we hope was the reason for the empty pods. I will order this variety again and give them a second chance because the early peas were so good.

Pisum sativum Peas nourish our bodies with phytonutrients and, surprisingly, with omega-3 fatty acids. A hard-working crop, they improve the soil, fixing nitrogen that will feed future crops. Especially easy to grow in cool seasons. Snap peas have edible pods that are sweetest as the pods fatten up. High in vitamin C and niacin, they are most nutritious when fresh and briefly cooked. For the best nutrition and flavor, grow your own crops. Snap peas are the most productive of all the types of peas. Some snap peas develop strings that are easily removed by peeling them back as the pods are harvested.

Days to maturity are calculated from the date of direct seeding. Note: In areas with mild winters such as the maritime Northwest where peas can be planted in February, add 35-40 days.

Culture
• Peas are a hardy cool-season crop that can be grown in a variety of soil types
• Side dress plants with 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer and 1/2 cup bone meal per 10 row feet
• Climbing varieties should be trellised
• Most bush-type vines can be supported on a short trellis or allowed to grow as a mound
• Environmental stress, such as prolonged hot weather or lack of moisture, will reduce yields
• Extend your harvest through multiple sowings

Direct Sowing
• Peas may be sown as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring
• Cool temperatures lead to slow and erratic germination
• Sow peas in July for a fall crop
• In mild climates you can overwinter

Insects & Diseases
• Common insects: Pea aphid
• Insect control: Pyrethrin should be applied at seedling stage if leaf scalloping is observed
• Common diseases: Fusarium wilt (also called pea root rot), powdery and downy mildews, and pea enation mosaic virus (more common in Northwest and Northeast areas)
• Disease control: Zonix
• Disease prevention: 3-4 year crop rotation

Harvest & Storage
• For snap and shelling peas, start checking for maturity as soon as the pods begin to swell
• Harvest frequently to keep plants producing
• If left on the vine too long, the peas become starchy and the pods become tough
• Store at 36°F and 95% humidity
