organic oregon sugar pod peaOrganic Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea (65 days)


Developed by Dr. James Baggett, of Oregon State University

This edible-pod snow pea is not only extra sweet, but an extremely heavy yielder. Pea pods are 4-5", thick and tasty. Vines 24"-34".  Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea bears 10 days earlier than Mammoth Melting Sugar Pea. Resistant to both pea enation virus and powdery mildew.

Scott Meyer at Organic Gardening.com says about Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea...
"Researchers in Alabama, Oregon and Florida grew a bunch of different snow pea varieties side-by-side, harvested the pods, weighed them and came up with some nicely consistent results: In all three locations, 'Oregon Sugar Pod' (or its more disease-resistant variation, 'Oregon Sugar Pod II') yielded the most pounds of pods. In the state for which it is named, 'Oregon Sugar Pod' produced 8.1 pounds of peas per 12 foot row vs. the 5.1 pounds produced by its closest competitor. In the other two trials, OSP or OSP II outyielded the other varieties by at least 20 percent. The reason for this extraordinary output, explains James Baggett, Ph.D., of Oregon State University, breeder of the productive peas, is that most snowpea plants produce one pod at each "growth node," but the two 'Oregon Sugar Pod' varieties produce two pods per node."

TIP  Instead of building a trellis this year for your peas which costs money and uses valuable resources, try planting Cayuse oats instead as a trellis.  This will not only produce oats and build biomass in your garden, but it will give your peas something to climb on.  Cayuse grows 6' tall and will make an excellent living trellis.  Almost like the Indians using corn as a trellis for beans!

Oregon Sugar Pod II Pea is recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region .  CA, FL, OR, TX

Planting Tips for Heirloom Organic Peas:

Heirloom organic peas like it cool, so you can plant them 3-4 weeks before your last frost date but besore the soil is well drained and raised in beds or rows.  Germination in these heirloom peas is as low as 45 degrees and it is often said that a cooler pea will be sweater.  Using soil inoculation will increase yields by boosting the available nitrogen in the soil.

For the highest yeildes of these delicous organic garden peas, make sure they have thin wire or string to climb.  This will give them more room to grow, thus collecting more sunshine and creating better yields.  Remember to continually pick the ripe pods as to encourage a longer harvest.

Organic Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
