Beautiful prolific plant.

They seem to produce more snow peas than those with white blossoms.
Both varieties are crispy and sweet . I like to add to salads.

Little Different Color

Little slower, these are pretty and look ornamental. The pods haven't come in yet 5/9 in WNC, but flowers are coming quickly. The size is nice, they stand up alone. The tendrils are good.

Just as good the second year around

These dwarf peas are great. My second year getting these seeds from Territorial. Both years they have done well. The blooms are very attractive, the pods are delicious, still producing albeit a bit slower in my early summer garden this year. A bit slower to flower and pod compared to another variety that I planted, but no complaints from me on this one.

A little slow to bloom but good producer once it started

Planted these in fall garden (zone 9b) and it took them closer to 70 days to bloom - but one they started its been a continuous show of color and lots of fresh peas. Great container plants as advertised :)

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
