Sugar Snap Pea
Sugar Snap Pea
'Sugar Snap' pea was bred and introduced by Gallatin Valley Seed Company of Twin Falls, Idaho in 1977 and was an "All-American Selection®" winner in 1979. Each ounce is approximately 110 seeds, which is generally enough to plant at least a ten foot row.
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.
