Sugarsnap Peas are a popular early maturing Pea variety.  Their pod, peas and shoots are edible and are a sweet, crunchy summer treat.  This vegetable looks pretty climbing up an obelisk or trellis in a kitchen garden.  

Our Ecoseeds range is certified organic, non-GMO and open pollinated. Each Sugarsnap Pea seed packet contains approximately 50 seeds.

About Sugarsnap Peas (Mangetout)

Peas have been cultivated throughout Europe, India and China for about 4,000 years, but the humble Sugar Snap Pea wasn't developed until the late 1970s. Sugarsnap peas are a cross between garden peas (shelling varieties) and snow peas. They tend to be more prolific than regular green pea plants and have tender, edible pods.  

Sugar snap peas are the perfect addition to the cottage garden, or your kitchen vegetable patch. 

Culinary Uses for Sugar Snap Peas

 Try Sugar Snap Peas blanched or raw in a fresh salad or in a salad.  You can eat both the pod and the juicy snacks inside. We love Sugar Snaps as healthy lunch box or pre-dinner snacks.

Growing Conditions - Sugar Snap Pea Seeds 

  

Peas prefer free draining soil (slightly acidic if possible), lots of sun and regular water.  While they will tolerate light frost, they don't like the wind or hot weather.

Rotate Sugar Snap Peas after Brassicas.  Companion plant with bee-attracting Marjoram, Sage, Lovage or Mint, but avoid planting near Garlic or Onions.

You can grow Sugar Snap Peas in a pot, but stake them for support, as they will grow to about 1.5m high.  This also keeps them off the ground and away from slugs and snails. (It also makes them easier to pick!)

At harvest time, pick your sugar snap peas regularly to encourage your plants to keep producing more.

Climate and seasonal information

Your sugar snap pea plants will thrive in cooler temperatures, so they are best planted in either early spring, or autumn.  They will grow in most parts of New Zealand in spring and early autumn.  Crops may last for longer in warmer areas.

    We offer a replacement guarantee

    To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

    If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.
