Peas - Sugar Snap

Peas - Sugar Snap

We grow sugar snap peas for their sweet juicy peas and edible pods.  We have a short window for growing peas here in the Okanagan depending on how warm our springs can be.  Sugar snap peas are excellent for snacking, in salads, sautees, and stir-fries.

 

Nutrition:  Peas are rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene, vitamins C, K, B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and manganese. They are a great source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fats. Green peas contain anti-inflammatory properties, and have been found to help lower the risk of type 2 diabetes due to their relatively low glycemic index and blood regulating properties.
