Snap Peas are firm and crisp with a gratifying snap to them and they are entirely edible — no shelling is required! Honey Snap has attractive golden yellow pods that are delicious, tender and sweet. The tips and blossoms can be harvested too. This specialty Snap Pea is perfect used fresh in salads, steamed, or sautéed with garlic and olive oil.
Honey Snap is a fantastic choice for 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 harvest, the richly-flavoured pods are best appreciated when used fresh off the vines.
To store, refrigerate snap peas in a plastic bag and eat them as soon as possible.
