Green Peas (Garden Starter Plant)
Sugar snap-style green peas are bred so that you can shell them like English peas, pick while young and flat to eat like small snow peas, or let them fill out to eat the pods with peas inside like a snap pea. This delicious Sugar Ann variety won the All-America Selections award in 1984 and continues its popularity today. Try it raw, boiled, or stir-fried. The vines are very compact and will be okay without support but may be easier to pick if you let them climb on sticks or on a short trellis. The short, bushy plant is perfect for containers, and in fact was bred with that in mind. Pick pods before they get too big. Good disease tolerance. Well adapted throughout the US.
