Snap Peas are firm and crisp with a satisfying snap to them and they are entirely edible — no shelling is needed! Royal Snap is a real showstopper. It produces deliciously sweet snap peas from violet and dark-purple bicoloured flowers. The maroon pods with contrasting bright green interiors turn vibrant purple at the point of maximum maturity. These specialty snap peas are most colourful when served raw or prepared with a light blanching or quick sauté.
Royal Snap is a perfect choice for a smaller garden spaces, hanging baskets and planters because it has bushy vines that can be grown with or without support. Peas are a cool weather crop and is best planted early spring or late summer for fall peas.
To store, refrigerate snap peas in a plastic bag and eat them as soon as possible.
