Super Sugar Snap Pea
5781- Super Sugar Snap. An earlier, somewhat shorter-vined version of Sugar Snap with the important addition of resistance to powdery mildew. The vines avg. 1.5 m or more and need trellising. The pods avg. 8 cm and the flavor is good but not quite as sweet as Sugar Snap. High resistance to pea leaf roll virus and powdery mildew. Plant the first sowing in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. In well-drained soil, sow 3-4 cm apart in a 10 cm band, 2-3 cm deep. Do not thin. Need trellis.
