When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as soil can be worked. Soil temperature must be above 40°F, ideally 60°-80°F. In mild climates, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest. Soil temperature should not exceed 85°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing; this is not required, but may hasten germination.

Harvesting: Snap peas should be harvested when peas are plump; pick regularly to increase yield. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick the pods with the other, as the vines are brittle.
