Start a stir-fry simmering with shiitake, peppers and scallions then dash to the garden for a basketful of Mammoth Melting Sugar. A crunchy, succulent pea that forms large edible flat pods on tall six-foot vines. Reliable in most areas, yet prefers cooler temperatures, the vines continue to produce edible pods late in the season.
Plant Information
The name "Mammoth Melting" is so fitting for this sugar pea variety because it's been such a huge favorite for so many years. It's known for producing generous yields and for being really easy to grow, and it enjoys a long harvest thanks to the fact that you can plant it twice per season - in early spring for a summer harvest and in mid-summer for a second crop in the fall. Mammoth Melting sugar peas also live up to their big name when it comes to size. Each plant will grow as tall as 7 feet and bear countless pods that are 4-5 inches in length and contain 5-8 sweet peas each. For best results, support growing plants with stakes or pea fencing and then use a trellis or taller structure as they continue to climb. Intended for eating whole, the plump Mammoth Melting pods are tender and sweet with a crispness and crunch that will add a lot to a salad or stir fry. They're also wonderful eaten solo as a healthy snack and will remain sweeter longer than other sugar pea varieties.
