Days to Maturity
Additional instructions: Provide thin supports that pea tendrils can clasp (e.g., string, thin wire) rather than thick supports such as stakes or bamboo. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered and mulch to conserve moisture. Water at the base of the plants to avoid mildew. 
Harvesting instructions: Pick peas frequently when pods are fully formed but still flat with tiny immature peas. Snow peas are delicious in stir-fries with ginger, soy sauce and garlic, but cook very quickly, just until they turn a deeper green color. Or enjoy the juicy pods as you pick them fresh from the vines.
