Pisum sativum

80 days, climbing, snow pea. Edible pod pea variety found at a market in Sevilla, Spain. Mildly sweet and large pods are borne on tall, 3’ vines. Heat tolerant and very productive. We call this variety after the city we found it in.

Snow peas are a good source of fiber and protein and are popular in both East Asian and European cuisines.  We love cooking them simply- stir frying them in butter and salt and eating them with our fingers.  Leave them on a little longer for blackened snow peas, or add cream for creamed snow peas.

Peas love a crowd, sow 1" apart along as soon as the ground can be worked in spring. Plant 1" deep at the base of a trellis such as a fence or net strung between two posts as vines grow tall. Plants will bear longer if planted early and pods are picked regularly before peas begin drying down.
