Description

Snap peas are best eaten fresh and there's nothing like picking them right off the vine. The French call edible podded peas mange tout meaning “eat all.” An All-America Selections award winner, 'Sugar Snap' provides an extended harvest of thick, crunchy 3″ pods filled with flavorful peas. Vines tolerate some heat. Grow climbing 6'–8' vines on poles or a trellis.
