Product Description:

55 days. An early and easy-to-grow snap pea. The non-climbing, dwarf vines set an abundant harvest of 2 ½ inch long, medium-green pods with a sweet, effervescent flavor. Best of luck getting any to the kitchen since they might all be consumed fresh in the garden.

If I had more room I'd grow more of these. I've tried others, always go back to these, for years and years. They are always super sweet, rarely make it to the kitchen, but when they do, I freeze them on cookie sheets and then bag them. We've had challenges with the summer here in Interior Alaska so I try to plant them as soon as the soil is workable and hope we dont have prolonged hot spells.

Sugar Ann Snap Pea

This is my favorite pea of all time! Territorial seeds always WIN for me in zone 5 NY, and this pea seed is also a winner! Matures very early in my cool, damp spring weather, ready to harvest by June. Sweet, crunchy delicious! I've never cooked them because they never make it out of the garden! Myself, husband, grandkids devour them off the vine. Hope to try a fall planting.


I was excited to try these because they were the first choice of the MN Master Gardener seed trial for snap peas in 2019. I will not be planting them again. They are pretty tasteless and not very sweet, if you catch them very early and small, smaller than most snap peas. You need to catch them when they are no longer than 2" and before peas have begun to form, otherwise they develop a very tough string and the whole pod is like trying to eat cellulose; pretty much inedible.

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.

• 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
