Fall crop of sugar snap pea's

n0nickrickAugust 12, 2008

Hello again.

I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to grow and harvest a fall crop of sugar snap or sugar daddy pea's in Ohio in the fall. I know pea's love cooler weather but I've found no data whatsoever on the possability or impossability of a fall crop. Any information or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Oh, they'll do fine. But, you need to get them in right away, since it's already halfway through August. This depends a bit on where you are in Ohio, since obviously, far northwest area/Toledo have an earlier frost and freeze than would Cincinnati or far southeast corner of the state.

I'm in the suburbs of Detroit, and planted my fall crop a few weeks ago. They're about four inches tall now, and should have a nice September/early October crop.

Often the fall crop is at least as nice, if not better, than the spring crop, since there isn't too much of a chance of extreme heat in the fall (although, last year, we had a stretch of low to mid 90's the first five days in October, felt like August all over again!).
