Pea 'Sugar Ann' (Sugarsnap)

Pisum sativum

A superb quality sugarsnap pea with round, fleshy, pale green, sweet tasting pods. Pea 'Sugar Ann' produces heavy crops from very early in the season. Its cropping period can be extended further with successional sowings. The succulent pods of this RHS AGM variety can be eaten immature while they are stringless but not so sweet. For sweeter, larger pods harvest them later when fully developed with the strings removed. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 25cm (10").

Direct sow Sugarsnap peas outdoors from March to June, once the soil as warmed. Choose a weed-free position on moist, fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow Sugarsnap seed in flat bottomed drills at a distance of 5cm (2") apart, and 4cm (1½") deep. Allow a distance of 75cm (30") between rows. For successional crops, sow Sugarsnap peas every 10 days.
Support Sugarsnap plants with twiggy sticks, wire or netting as they grow, and use fine netting to protect pea crops from birds and pea moth damage. When growing Sugarsnap peas, regular and thorough watering especially when in flower will improve crop yields. Harvest edible podded peas around 12-13 weeks after sowing just as the peas inside start to form. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.
