Sugar Ann snap pea is an edible pod snap pea that produces medium green three inch pods that are round with blunt ends. The pods are very sweet, tender, flavorful, making them perfect for stir fry and salads, and Oriental dishes.  In general,  peas must be picked regularly (at least every other day) to assure sweet, fiber-free pods. 

This variety of pea has gorgeous flowers that start out all white, and progress to white and deeper purple as they age. Freezes well. AAS Winner 1984

 Did you know... that one serving of green peas contains as much Vitamin C as two large apples and the Romans grew over 37 varieties of peas.

CLASSIFICATION:  Open Pollinated, Heirloom, Non-Gmo, Annual

Open pollinated means this plants flowers are fertilized by bees, moths, birds, bats, and even the wind or rain. The seed that forms produces the same plant the following year. 

All heirlooms are open pollinated, but not all open pollinated plants are heirlooms. Only a small fraction of the plant world is considered heirloom. This variety has a history of being passed down within communities and families as early as the 1700's, similar to the generational sharing of items like jewelry or furniture.
