Here is the Sugar Daddy Pea, Pisum sativum. This is a mid to late season type pea and is a good producer. They are prolific and bushy plants that only grow to 30 to 40 inches tall with pods about 3 inches long. This variety was developed by Dr. Calvin Lamborn and is an improved version of the Sugar Snap pea. This stringless variety is good for freah eating with the pod when young. We found them to make a great pea soup but also good in stir fry. Open pollinated 60 to 71 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
