60 days — 'Sugar Ann' sugar snap pea vines are short, reaching twenty-four to thirty inches tall, and although they do not require it, they will definitely benefit from some support. Like snow peas, the whole pods of sugar snap peas are eaten. They are best harvested small at about two inches in length when they are crisp, sweet, and flavorful. After de-stringing, they are great fresh, used in a stir fry, or frozen for later use.

Bred and introduced by Gallatin Valley Seed Company of Twin Falls, Idaho in 1982[1,2], 'Sugar Ann' was an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1984. Each ounce is approximately 110 seeds, which is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.

Planting Instructions: Loosen rich well-drained soil in a location that receives six to eight hours of full sunlight per day. Add compost or fertilizer before planting.

Plant seeds directly outdoors in spring or fall when temperatures are cool. Plant 1½ inches deep, one to two seeds every two inches. Keep moist until germination. Thin to one plant every two inches in rows spaced thirty inches apart. Although the name or description of this variety refers to a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsmen that originally released it.
