Carouby De Maussane Snow Peas


Part of my garden space this year is growing a number of different things testing this and that.. the great landrace squash growout, the pumpkins and so much more..

This one is very special to me, our little farm garden is helping with a larger scale cropping of a harder to find old French heritage pea, its a sugar snap pea, it can grow a five foot vine, and its pods average four to six inches across.. they are huge. the flowers are two tone


I was sent 350 seeds ( with a massively good start rate of 94%), I have planted out 60 feet of this pea, I did a three staggered planting, one week apart, my first plantings is up and already 3 to 4 inches high, second is sprouting and third is coming

I will be eating some or maybe lots its has big of a producer as they say, but I will also be saving seed on a large scale to sending back to the program..

Updates on progress will occur thought the growing season.

    WOW! I’ve grown some big Sugar Snaps but it’s been because they eluded picking. There’s just so much green they are sometimes very hard to see closer to the ground and the knees don’t work as good as they use too. My limited amount of peas are up and climbing.

    It’s great that you’re doing this. I’ve never had any luck with Sugar Snaps. I hope you have an abundant harvest!

    What an incredibly amazing plant, FG; and such a gorgeous blossom! Does she happen to have scent, as well?

    I wonder how they’d do in containers?

      Hi Callie, not sure about these ones (and some types are marked as “heat tolerant”) but I remember my Grandma out in the garden planting peas as soon as the ground was thawed enough to get them in, if that helps?
