This edible pod snow pea is the type used in Chinese cuisine. Unlike snap peas, it is best harvested at a very immature stage, when the forming peas are just barely visible. This relatively new variety was developed at Oregon State University and has a fairly short vine (30-36”), so it isn’t absolutely necessary to support it. Pods are smooth and ready for harvest when 4” long. Flavor is sweet and mild. 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.
