Dwarf Grey Sugar Snow Pea
Here is the Dwarf Grey Sugar snow pea, Pisum sativum. Sometimes referred to as Dwarf Gray pea. This is a earliest type pea and is a heavy producer. They are prolific and bushy plants that only grow to 24 to 36 inches tall with pods about 2.5 inches long. This old heirloom variety was listed once as Dwarf Gray Sugar Cabbage Pea, and has been in production since before 1773. It is more or less a determinate type so once they put out all their pods the plant will die off. This variety is not good for freah eating with the pod but rather great for drying or freezing fresh. We found them to make a great pea soup but also good in stir fry. Open pollinated 34 to 45 days from sprouting.
