MAMMOTH MELTING SUGAR SNOW PEA (HEIRLOOM, 65-75 DAYS)
Germ 7-14 days Heirloom Delectable super sweet stringless pods produce tremendous yields on the 5’ vines. Later maturing variety stays yummy even when harvesting 5” pods at the end of the pea season. Pick young or pick mature the sweetness will endure. 50 seeds
Outdoors- Sow 1” deep and 1-2” apart in early spring with soil temperatures 40-70 degrees.
Harvest- Pick every day for continuous harvest.
Tips- Adding inoculant with rhizobium bacteria will increase yields. Plant again, two months before last frost date for smaller fall harvests. Varieties with vine lengths over 3 feet require support.
It's still early but, Mammoth is performing as planned. It has been cool and wet much longer than usual. Of course snow peas like it like this, fortunately I had enough warm, sunny time to get my peas up before the cool rain.
