  • Regular price $4.95

Pisum sativum

This sweet, tender and crispy podded snow pea grows on vines that need to be trellised as they can get to be up to 5' tall. Pods themselves are 5-6" in length - our largest podded pea! Currently Kathy's favourite snow pea, in part because of its stunning bicolored flowers of pink and burgundy. This pea makes an attractive vertical addition to the garden. 65 days to maturity.

In the kitchen

An old country spring-time tradition; lightly sauté peas in butter, salt and pepper and a splash of heavy cream. Reduce for a minute and then serve on thick toasted country bread. This unassumingly delicious dish can be made with snap or shelling peas, and can be dressed with fresh herbs if desired.
