The first snap pea we harvest each spring & perfect for containers.

Pea, Sugar Ann


Description Seed Saving Instructions Planting Instructions
Organic Sugar Ann Dwarf Snap Pea Always the first pea we harvest each spring! We love how easy it is to trellis (or not trellis!) the 2 to 3 foot vines of Sugar Ann that are covered in sugary sweet pods. Their dwarf habit makes them perfect for containers or small gardens; we always plant them in our large garden simply because we'll enjoy them for weeks ahead of the full-size snap peas so the combination of the two makes for 5+ weeks of glorious peas. Its early maturity also makes Sugar Ann an ideal fall pea: sow in late July or early August for a harvest at the end of September of pods sweet as can be. (Pods that develop in the cool temperatures of fall convert many of their starches into sugar and they are even sweeter than any summer pea!)

And friends, know that your packets of Sugar Ann will be about 85% Sugar Ann and 15% dwarf snow pea. This is because seed stocks were mixed in large-scale seed production years ago and haven't been cleaned up yet. We are proud to be returning Sugar Ann to its pure varietal but we're not there yet; thanks for your understanding and we're confident you'll appreciate the interim diversity!

52 days to maturity
