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.

GERMINATION INFOPlanting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.Green Thumb TipSow seeds outdoors when the soil has warmed. Tolerant of heat and drought, but not of cold. Keep well picked for higher yields.DIRECT SEED 2" ApartSEED DEPTH 1/2"THIN 6-8" Apart LIGHT Full Sun
