Crunchy, long & sweet, we love let snow peas swell in their pods for an even sweeter treat! At Fruition, we sow and share both full-size and compact varieties of snow pea. We often sow both full-size and dwarf varieties on the same day once the snows melt so we can enjoy twice the harvest window. Here in Zone 5, we sow snow peas directly in the soil once the snows melt and in early August for an abundant fall harvest! Also, because they fix their own nitrogen, peas thrive in the limited nutrients of container gardens more than most.
