Sugar Sprint Pea (58 Days)

This one is definitely the earliest sugar snaps but it has some other virtues as well. Practically stringless – the least of any snap pea, and has short vines, allowing it to mature with little to no support. Reportedly the best flavor of any of the newer (post sugar ann, sugar bon, sugar rae) sugar snaps and offers a high resistance to powdery mildew.   

 1 Ounce = 100-120 seeds
