Wonderfully sweet and crisp, this is an outstanding sugarsnap, especially eaten young when picked fresh, straight from the plant so that you really enjoy the sweetness and the ‘snap’ when you bite into them.

Top Tips

  • Pick pods regularly to encourge a longer harvest.

Care Information

Growing sugarsnap peas

  • Ensure the soil is well prepared, preferably with well rotted compost dug into it.
  • Soak plug plants in water for several hours before planting 60cm (2ft) apart.
  • Provide support, such as sticks, canes or netting for the peas to climb up. They will cling using tendrils so you won’t need to tie them in.
  • Water plants well and regularly to encourage pod development, especially when the plants start to flower.
  • Avoid feeding with nitrogen-rich fertilisers as this causes lots of leafy growth instead of producing pods.

Harvest

  • Pick pods when they are about 8-9cm long, tender and stringless and flat, before the peas inside swell.
  • The pods lowest down on the plant mature first, so harvest from the bottom and work your way up.
  • Although best eaten fresh, sugarsnap peas freeze well.
