Common Name: Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea
Scientific Name: Pissum sativum
Organic Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea is an edible pod, bush, and snow pea variety with tender, crisp, sweet, 4″ long pods—ideal for stir-fry dishes, snacks, and salads and great for freezing. The young sprouts have long been used as a gourmet garnish. Oregon Sugar Pods split and produce two peas at every growth node while other snow peas produce just one. The “II” in Oregon Sugar Pod II refers to the fact that this evolution of the pea is disease-resistant. So you get lots of peas and no powdery mildew. Great to plant for winter microgreens. The shoots are sweet, crunchy and delicious. Harvest them at about 2″ long. Their quick germination makes them one of the most productive for microgreens.
Peas fix nitrogen in the soil which helps them to form a close friendship with corn. You can also plant your peas with bush beans, pole beans, carrots, celery, chicory, cucumber, eggplant, parsley, early potato, radish, spinach, strawberry, sweet pepper, tomatoes, and turnips. Keep your peas away from chives, grapes, late potatoes and onions.
