Snow Pea Oregon Dwarf

Overview

Botanical Name: Pisum sativum

Snow Peas combine taste and economy as the whole of the pod is eaten and cooked. This is a very heavy cropping variety providing fleshy, light green pods with a fine sweet flavour. If you have never tried them, don't miss the opportunity!

Pick when pods are still flat and peas are only just forming. If you have too many leave some on the plant and allow the pods to swell, they are still delicious. Half-hardy annual.

We hope you enjoy these snow pea seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

Plant Height: 1-1.5m

How To Grow

Sow in flat trenches 6in (15cm) wide, and 2in (5cm) deep. Plant seeds in a zig-zag fashion along the middle of the trench, allowing 3in (7.5cm) between them. Fill trenches with soil and gently firm down. Where more than one row of peas is required, allow 3ft (90cm) between rows. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth. We advise using sticks or twigs to support the crop as this will make picking easier and improve yields. Keep well watered.
