We grow these and they are so good eaten from the vine, they never make it into the house. Very sweet and crunchy and a nice snack to have while working in the garden.

Sugar Snap is a very good variety of snap pea. I grew Sugar Snap until I discovered Super Sugar Snap and then switched over. But Sugar Snap has excellent yield and taste.
