Pea Snap 'Sugar Daddy' Seed Pack

Availability: In stock (3)

"Sugar Daddy' snap peas have come a long way from the original sugar snap pea, and both were developed by Dr. Calvin Lamborn, so he knew what improvements were needed. This variety produces 3" long, completely edible green pods that are stringless and grow on a short vine (less than three feet!) that is much more disease-resistant than its predecessors. Although staking isn't required, some sort of trellis or support will make harvesting all those delicious crispy sweet pea pods easier. This is a cool season crop, so plant outdoors just when the soil is warm enough and again in mid-summer for a second fall harvest.
