Oregon Sugar Pod II
Vigorous, short vines produce bumper crops of juicy-sweet flat green crispy sugar pods over a long harvest season. Perfect eating fresh or stir-fry in seconds.
(Resistant to powdery mildew, pea virus & common wilt)
Use netting or wire trellis or short tree branches stuck into the ground to support these heavy bearing vines for easy picking. Turn a sprinkling of bone meal and wood ashes into the soil before planting. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered, and mulch to conserve moisture.
HARVEST AND USE
Pick peas frequently when pods are fully formed but still flat with tiny immature peas. Snow peas are delicious in stir-fries with ginger, soy sauce and garlic, but cook very quickly, just until they turn a deeper green color. Or enjoy the juicy pods as you pick them fresh from the vines.
