Size: Sugar snap peas sizes vary depending on where they grow. A mature pod grows to about 4 to 8 cm or about 1.5 to 3 inches in length. The height and width of the plant vary depending on the pod’s number. Our team at FrutPlanet has been harvesting sugar snap peas for years and can quickly tell from afar.
Colour: Sugar snap peas have a similar physical appearance to other peas but are smaller. A mature sugar snap pea has a pale green colour. However, they are a little darker than snow peas. Our experts at FrutPlanet can easily set apart mature sugar snap peas by identifying their colour.
Cultivars: At FrutPlanet, we export almost all snap peas cultivars. Some cultivars we export include Sugar Ann, Sugar Bon, Amish Snap, Cascadia, Sugar Daddy, Super Sugar Snap, and Sugar Snap. Each cultivar has its timeframe to maturity but mainly ranges between 50-70 days. You can Request a Quote and specify your preferred cultivar.
Seeds: A mature snap pea has about four to ten seeds, and at the time of harvesting fresh sugar snap peas, the seeds are often premature. We pick seeds that are round but not entirely swollen or firm. Sugar snap peas that are too mature have dull and hard seeds, and the skin becomes fibrous. We harvest sugar snap peas when the pods are young and edible to ensure you get value for money.
Boosts Bone Health: One important nutrient in the development process of bone is vitamin K. Sugar snap peas are a great source of vitamin K that boosts your skeletal system. Vitamin K helps in the formation of calcium in the skeletal body. This reduces the risk of conditions such as osteoporosis and bone fractures. Additionally, the high Vitamin K concentration improves how fast the body heals.
Helps in Digestion: Dietary fibre is crucial in the digestive system. Snap peas have a high concentration of insoluble dietary fibre that acts as a prebiotic. What the fibre does is feed the good bacteria in the gut and keep the digestive system healthier and more predictive. Additionally, the fibre adds bulk to the food, reducing constipation.
Controls Blood Sugar: Sugar snap peas are non-starchy vegetables, making them beneficial to diabetic persons. The America Diabetes Association explains that snap peas have high phytonutrients and fibre that regulate the body’s blood sugar. Eventually, this gets the body going without absorption of sugars in the blood.
Eases Weight Loss: Eating sugar snap peas does not increase starch in the body. Snap peas are non-starchy vegetables and can help boost your efforts towards weight loss. Adding snap peas to your meals helps you get full and offers your body the relevant nutrients. Therefore, you will eat less and feel more content.
Improves Eye Health: One of perhaps the most essential nutrient in snap peas is the carotenoid which is present in the form of lutein and zeaxanthin in peas. These antioxidants help reduce the risk of contracting ageing-related conditions. Eating sugar snap peas increases lutein and zeaxanthin, slowing down the progression of these conditions.
Boosts Your Immunity: Snap peas have a high concentration of beta-carotene, vitamin C, and Vitamin A. These nutrients are critical in the growth of immune cells and white blood cells. Vitamins A boosts the body’s vitality against bacteria and viruses, whereas vitamin C promotes the formation of white blood cells essential in fighting diseases.
We partner with sugar snap peas farmers and have our experts be part of the harvesting process. The harvesters put the peas in buckets or wooden boxes and transport them to our pack stations.
Once at the station, we examine each snap peas load for foreign materials and any physical defects. We then wash the snap peas and invite the inspecting authorities to check them before packing them in cartons.
Some defects we check include colour variants such as yellow, blemishes, and other harmless vegetable matters such as tendrils, pods, and leaves. We aim to ensure that foreign matter, including insects, wood, glass, stones or any other type, is eliminated.
