Organic Spotlight Snow Peas
Large, sweet snow peas, both purple and green! We love how easy it is to trellis (or not trellis) these 2 to 3-foot vines, cascading vivid pods with a glorious crunch. About half the pods are bright emerald green, half are deep burgundy purple and you’ll find a few beautifully variegated both colors…those are our favorite…!
Compact 2.5 to 3-foot vines make Spotlight Snow Pea perfect for containers or small gardens. Even in our large gardens, we always plant them to enjoy several weeks ahead of the full-size snap peas, so the combination of the two makes for 5+ weeks of glorious pea harvest.
Early maturity makes Spotlight Snow Pea an ideal spring and fall pea. For fall harvest 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!)
These peas, Epistro and Merlot, were developed at Cornell University in addition to untold generations of co-adaptive indigenous brilliance.
