Dwarf Grey Sugar Pea
Pisum sativum macrocarpon 'Dwarf Grey Sugar'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
An American heirloom pea from at least the 1770s, still popular today. And why not? It is one of the earliest snow pea varieties -- and its lovely reddish lavender blossoms produce the most delicious sweet tender edible pods, excellent for stir-fries, steamed, or just served raw. The flowers are edible too: try them in salads or just toss them on soup or a quiche just before serving. Although it is a dwarf pea, it normally grows 60-90cm (2-3ft) high but can reach as high as 1.5m (5ft), so tying vines to a trellis is beneficial. As a cool season crop, it is best planted early in spring about 2-4 weeks before the last frost. It can also be sown late in the season two months before the first frost. 65 days.
