This eye-catching variety is the first yellow podded sugarsnap pea available to gardeners. The robust plants produce excellent yields of 7-8cm (2½-3in) pods with a sweet, fresh pea flavour, which are delicious eaten raw or added to stir fries. The leaves and shoots of these tall plants are edible too, having a pleasantly sweet flavour.
Direct sow sugarsnap peas outdoors from March to June, once the soil as warmed. Choose a weed-free position on moist, fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow in flat bottomed drills at a distance of 5cm (2in) apart, and 4cm (1½in) deep. Allow a distance of 75cm (30in) between rows. For successional crops, sow every 10 days.
