Description

  • Snap pea, sugar snap pea, is a cultivar group of edible-podded peas. Opposite to the snow pea pods, the snap pea pods are rounded, which are flat and thicker.

  • Like other peas, snap peas are pod fruits. Pods of the edible-podded pea, including snap peas, do not have a membrane and do not open when ripe.

  • At maturity, the pods grow to around 4-8 cm in length. Pods contain three to eight peas. The plants are climbing, and pea sticks or a trellis or other support system is required for optimal growth. Some cultivars are capable of climbing to 2 m high but plants are more commy around 1-1,3 m high, for ease of harvest and cultivation.
