60 days to maturity. Open-pollinated. This Oregon State University release bred by Dr. James Baggett is the most popular snow pea. A giant selection from a giant breeder, Oregon Giant is distinguished for its sweet rich green fat wide 4–5" pods good for stir-fries, steaming and eating out of hand. Retains sweetness so may be picked a little plumper than the thin-podded varieties. We recommend staking the 3–4' vines. Resistant to PEMV, PM and F1.
Plant 3/4" deep, 2" apart, in rows 5' apart, on a fence, as soon as the ground can be worked.
Culture: Peas are legumes with moderate fertility requirements. Avoid excess nitrogen: they can fix their own. Use Legume Inoculant as an aid. They prefer cool, moist weather and dislike dry heat. Sow as early as ground can be worked for best yields. All peas produce more when staked; varieties over 2½' must be supported. Use either Trellis Plus or chicken wire. Install support at planting time to avoid disturbing seedlings. Plant 8–10 seeds/ft on each side of supports in double rows. Set supports for rows 3' apart (5' if very tall varieties).
Harvest snow peas before pods fill out. Don’t pick snap peas too soon: snaps taste sweetest when completely filled. Young snow and snap plants can be eaten as greens, good in mesclun or lightly cooked. To serve pea shoots, remove the coarse tendrils and break the stalk into 3" pieces each with some leaves.
