We had a visit from Thoreau Elementary School,
and were lucky enough to plant some seeds with some of their great
students. We have been carefully caring for the Oregon snow pea seeds
that they so kindly planted for us during their visit. They are doing
great, and sprouting up a storm. Check them out, and thank you Thoreau
students for visiting the garden!
Oregon snow peas: Scientific name: Pisum sativum Common names:Oregon Sugar Pod Pea, Oregon Snow Pea, Oregon Giant Pea.
Mature Snow Peas
A cool season
crop, it is a hardy annual (surviving just one growing season) and is
one of our nation's most popular pea varieties! However, if trying to
grow in late fall and winter, they need to be in a greenhouse. Flavor: Tender and succulent, with a sweet flavor.
