Spring Blush Snap Pea (70 days)

1

Pisum sativum

 

Green pods are tinted with a distinctive raspberry pink color while offering the same alluring bi-colored flowers, vigorous vines and ornate hyper tendrils like Sugar Magnolia and Opal Creek all developed from the same breeder, Alan Kapuler Ph.D. Sugar snaps were first developed in the 1950’s from a cross of a snow pea and shell pea; over sixty years later we now have these delightful, diverse varieties for us to  grow and enjoy in our gardens. We love to grow them all at the same time for a colorful array of delicious snap peas.           

100 seeds  

 

PLANTING

Germination: 7-14 Days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 55-70 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1” deep

Outside Sowing: Early spring with soil temperatures reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1-2” apart. Cooler soil temperatures increase germination time, along with a potential for the seed to rot, especially if it is wet soil. Sow two months before last frost date for smaller fall harvests. 

How much does a packet plant: 8-10 foot single row

Harvest: Sugar snaps - when they are plump. Snow peas - when they are young, starting at 1-2” and peas are underdeveloped. Shelling peas - when pods are plump and filled out, before they fade or harden. Pea shoots - snip off the top 4-6” of the vine. Pick continually every 1-2 days to prolong production.

Tips: For tall varieties put trellis up when you plant the peas. Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Do not over fertilize with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants.

Spring Blush snap pea

I love this pea! The flowers as well as the pods are beautiful and they are tender and very sweet. I will grow this every year now. I like the pinkish pod also because sometimes I can't tell the snap peas from the regular peas if they are shaped the same. The color identifies which one it is so there are no surprises when we bite into one.
