Snap Peas


The varieties listed here are generally in order from earliest to latest maturing. Pick snap peas when the pods are plump and full, remove the string (we also have a couple stringless varieties) and eat them pod and all. They can be cooked or frozen, but we enjoy them best raw, as snacks or in salads.

Sugar Ann

Sugar Ann (AAS 1984) starts producing toward the end of June. The plants are small so total yield is not great, and its quality is not as good as some of the later varieties.
