SNOW PEA Oregon Sugar Pod - 25 HEIRLOOM Seeds (NOT to TAS)
Oregon Sugar Pod features extremely hardy, high yielding vines of 10cm flat pods that hold their colour well. A bush variety, growing to only 90 to 120cm tall. The translucent, bright green pods are crisp, tender and full of flavour. The tiny peas inside are tender and sweet.
Oregon Sugar Pod often produces pods in clusters of two as opposed to the usual one. This pea variety is one of the best choices for the short season of cooler climates.
This is extremely disease resistant, to wilt, pea enation virus and streak virus.
These fast-growing plants can be harvested with the pick-and-grow-again method. One to four cuttings can be obtained in a growing season. Easy to grow, they crop in 60 to 65 days and are an excellent variety for home gardening.
High in Vitamins A, B and C, this excellent pea variety is entirely edible, including the pod, which accounts for its French name, mange-tout, or "eat it all". An essential vegetable in Chinese cooking, the sweet, crunchy pods are ideal for stir-fry dishes and used raw in salads.
At their freshest, snow peas epitomize the best in vegetation when cooked or eaten raw - so go ahead and mange-tout! That's what they are made for!
