How to Harvest Petite Snap Greens
Harvest Petite Snap Greens for pea-shoots, or wait for the pea pods to develop on the vine. These are a fun and frilly variety of peas, great for dramatic garnishes! Check out our harvesting tips below to promote continuous leaf-production for multiple harvests.
How to Harvest Petite Snap Greens:
- Start harvesting after about 2 weeks, or when the plant has 2-3 sets of leaves.
- With a pair of scissors, snip off the pea shoots right above a growth point or node. Only take about 1/3 of the total plant material to allow it to grow back for future harvests.
- Or, wait an additional few weeks for flowers and pea pods to develop on the plants and harvest those.
- Add your pea shoots to salads or make a Mind Your P's and Q's!
