Q.Sugar snap peas

Zone Central North Carolina | Anonymous added on March 12, 2016 | Answered

Grew some in my garden last year, as I have always done. Usually so good we eat them right off the vine. This time they weren’t very sweet at all. Is there something they may be missing?

There are many different varieties of peas. Select varieties that are listed as edible podded peas.
Peas are a cool weather crop so plant as soon as danger of frost is past.
In souther climate plant in fall for the best crop.
Environmental factors can effect growth and taste of the peas.
Harvest just as the pods began to fill out. If the peas get to large, they are less sweet and left to long actually taste bitter.
