To Grow Brazilian Snow Peas:

Soil Preparation: Snow peas prefer well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Prepare your garden bed by loosening the soil and mixing in compost or aged manure to improve fertility.

Planting Time: The best time to plant snow peas is in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Snow peas can tolerate light frosts, so they can be planted a few weeks before the last expected frost date in your area.

Sowing Seeds: Plant the seeds about 1 inch deep and 2 inches apart in rows. The rows should be spaced about 18 to 24 inches apart. Water the soil gently after planting.

Support Structures: Since Brazilian snow peas can grow up to 6 feet tall, it’s important to provide support for them to climb. Set up trellises, stakes, or a fence for the peas to cling to as they grow.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Snow peas need about an inch of water per week, whether from rainfall or irrigation.

Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around the plants to help retain soil moisture and control weeds. Pea roots like cool soil.

Fertilizing: Use a balanced fertilizer a few weeks after planting, but be cautious not to over-fertilize, as too much nitrogen can reduce flowering and pod production.

Harvesting: Snow peas are ready to harvest when the pods are about 3-4 inches long, tender, and the peas inside are just beginning to form. Regular harvesting encourages more pod production.
