Pisum sativum var. saccharatum 'Oregon Giant'

 

Snow Pea 'Oregan Giant'

Peas are an easy crop to grow, very productive, and if planted in succession give pickings from mid to late summer. There are two main types of pea, dwarf and climbing, the later needing supports. In addition round seeded peas tend to be the hardy varieties and are the early peas; wrinkled seeded being the later type, being second early and main crop. Mange tout are an edible pod variety always best picked young before the seed swells. 'Oregon Giant' is a climbing variety, perennial, but often grown as an annual, bearing small white flowers that are followed by long, green pods containing small, round, edible peas that are ready in late Spring until to the end of Summer. It is resistant to pea mosaic virus, powdery mildew and wilt.

Planting outdoors in spring

From Mid Spring TO Mid Summer

Plant container grown peas in mid Spring in triple rows about 4" between seedlings. Don't let them dry out.

 

Propagation by seed

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Early round seeded peas can be sown in early Spring; and wrinkle seeded, second early or main crop varieties are best sown in mid Spring, when the ground has warmed a little. Sow in shallow trench about 2" deep and 10" wide sprinkle seed in the bottom to end up about 4" apart.
