Sugar Sprint Pea (58 Days)
The Sugar Sprint Pea is definitely the earliest sugar snap, 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. The Sugar Sprint Pea reportedly has 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.
