Purple Mist Snow Pea


Purple Mist Snow Pea | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada
Pisum sativum | Annual | Heirloom

A Dutch heirloom that is multi-purpose pea. Young pods enjoyed as snow peas. When pods left longer to mature, it can be used as shelling pea. Shelled pea can be stored for winter for soup making. Vines get 5-6’ long. Trellising needed.

Planting tip: Direct sow is recommended.  It can also be planted in late summer for a fall crop. Hot and dry conditions are not ideal for peas.

Harvesting tip: Harvest immature and flat edible-pod before the seeds begin to fill out. Harvest every other day to keep pods from getting too big. Snow peas can be eaten whole pod and all or shelled just like garden peas.

Storage tip: Store at 1-2°C for around a week.
