Cultural practices : peas like to grow in a cool climate. Early varieties are sown as soon as the soil allows. Depending on your region and the variety, it may be possible to sow from the end of April until mid-May. For fall crops, sow in July and August.

Soil : rich, well-drained, sandy soil is ideal.

Spacing : peas are natural climbers and tolerate being crowded. If space is limited, use a wire mesh between double rows. Sow in double rows spaced 7 cm to 10 cm apart. Leave 5 cm between the seeds and cover them with 5 mm of soil. Make successive sowing (watch out for hot temperatures). For best results, install them on a support, such as a trellis. Do not thin the plants.

Growing tips : is grown like a pea, except that the very fibrous pod of the pea cannot be eaten. However, snow peas are eaten as a whole, pods and peas.

Harvest : harvest when the still thin pods barely show the seeds inside.
