Oregon Sugar Pod
Delivery from 80p. Free on all orders over £10.
This easy to grow, non-climbing, snow pea is a prolific producer of stringless, edible pods that keep on producing after multiple pickings. The dwarf vines are perfect for container gardens or allotments short on space. A favorite in Asian cooking, these peas are excellent when picked young and stir-fried, or simply eaten raw.
70 days spring sown. 250 days fall sown.
A gardener’s favorite, Oregon Sugar Pod peas are vigorous producers of long, flat pods that are mild-flavored and incredibly sweet. As a dwarf pea, they are extremely easy to grow and unlike other vining peas, hold up well without staking. The pods are best when picked young (about 8 cm long), and with frequent harvesting, will keep producing until the weather becomes too hot. This particular variety is resistant to the pea virus, common wilt and powdery mildew.
May be sown from February to late May in UK climates. For continuous production, plant successively every few weeks.
