Snow peas are a good source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and K (important for helping your blood to clot). They are an excellent source of dietary fibre and contain folate.
Doubly borne pods measuring 8-10 cm (4-5”) long and 2 cm (1”) wide. This sweet and tender pea has multiple disease resistance and is very prolific. It grows well in our northern climate. They like to produce early so plant in April as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant 1 cm (1/2”) deep and 4 cm (2”) apart. Even though they are a dwarf variety they could still use some support. Easy to pick. Harvest continually to encourage further yields. Resistant to: Powdery Mildew, Fusarium Wilt, Pea-Enation Mosaic Virus, Pea Streak Virus.   65 days.   15g/Approx.
Snow peas and sugar snap peas have similar qualities because both belong to the legume family.
Confusingly, the French name, mangetout — meaning “eat all” — is often used for both.
However, though they’re closely related, they’re still two separate varieties.
Snow peas have been cultivated for centuries.
They’re sometimes referred to as Chinese pea pods, as they’re said to have originated from Southwest Asia.
Snow peas have a flatter pod than sugar snap peas and contain very small peas. In fact, most of the time, they’re harvested before the peas have fully developed in the pod.
Before eating, you generally remove a tough string along the edge of the pod.
Like sugar snap peas, snow peas are members of the legume family, but they’re the plant of the Pisum sativum var. Saccharatum species.
As they can withstand frost and snow, snow peas are generally available year-round, though their peak season is spring through the beginning of winter.
Some people believe that the common name “snow peas” stems from their ability to deter harsh winter conditions.
Snow peas are a slightly tender — yet crisp — sweet pea.
Sugar snap peas are also tender yet crisp but tend to have a sweeter flavor profile, as they’re crossed with the garden pea.
