Sugar Lace II Pea Seeds



The Famous Stringless, Leafless Sugar Snap!

Now Sugar Lace is resistant to PEMV!

68 days from direct-sowing.

When Sugar Lace arrived on the scene, a bright new day dawned for sugar snap peas! This variety was not only stringless, it was nearly LEAFLESS -- all its energy went into making peas, for yields like you wouldn't believe! Well, now the best is even better: Sugar Lace II has the same highly productive habit, PLUS improved disease resistance!

Sugar Lace II sets masses and masses of dark green, plump 3½-inch pods on compact 30-inch plants that never need staking. No strings and very few leaves mean easier harvest as well as lots more peas!

And while the production is exciting, the flavor is the real accomplishment here. Succulent and sweet, these peas are a gourmet treat -- without the gourmet price or special effort!

Sugar Lace II sets well in either spring or fall, and has added Pea Enation Mosaic Virus (PEMV) to its arsenal of disease resistance, which also includes Powdery Mildew and Bean Leaf Roll Virus. A great Pea for north or south, Sugar Lace II is a must for anyone who appreciates super-sweet flavor and plenty of it!

Easy to grow, peas love cold weather, so plant as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Direct-sow 1 to 2 inches apart and 1 to 1½ inches deep. Peas are also ideal as a fall crop started in late summer. To conserve space and simplify harvesting, sow in double rows with a trellis between rows.

When the harvest is in, be sure to chop the whole plant up and plow it back into the soil of your vegetable garden. Peas are legumes, great nitrogen-fixers in the garden. Your soil next season will be all the better for an infusion of legume plants! Happy growing!

Best sugar snaps I ever grew

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted several in a 10 x 10 community garden plot, and got about 80% germination, with a number of those later succumbing to rabbits or just not having much vigor. In two months, I got 13 pounds of peas, and I ate so many right off the bush (like, RIGHT off, as if they were grapes), I felt sick later in the day. Believe what Park says about yield and taste. As a bonus, the corn that followed them did very well with all the nitrogen the peas gave to the soil. My only complaint is they were slower to start than most other snap peas.
