Description

Sugar Snap Peas from Guatemala are grown predominantly in the departments of Chimaltenango, Sololá and Huehuetenango, being Chimaltenango the area of production for the first and last crops of the season and Sololá and Huehuetenango the production areas for the middle of the season, the last gaining more and more importance in the production of this crop due to the coolest weather conditions in the high lands of the country.

The interest from farmers to dedicate their efforts to the Sugar Snap production is variable, with some farmers prefering the crop due to its highest weigh compared to the Snow Peas Mangetout, and other farmers prefering not to plant them because it is a lot more delicate and more suceptible of mechanical damage.

Sugar Snap Peas are a cross between garden peas and snow peas. Snap peas grow on a vine, which is supported by a trellis or other support system in order to keep the pods from touching the soil.

They are a good source of vitamins A, C Thiamin, and Niacin, and provide adequate amounts of phosphorous, iron and potassium. Sugar snap peas are a great addition to a healthy diet because they contain no cholesterol, almost no fat and are low in sodium.

Sugar Snaps are delicious, crunchy and they have a sweet and juicy flavour, they come from our own farms and small holder farms in Guatemala. Enjoy the snapping sound and eat them whole.
