Snow Peas are a variety of pea that can be eaten whole in the pod while still unripe. The flat, sweet, crisp pods are eaten fresh and added to salads and stir-fries. Like other peas, Snow Peas do best in cooler weather and benefit from inoculation just before planting. Some varieties require trellising. If trellising, increase row spacing to 1.2 m.
