Sugar snaps

Sugar snaps are a cross between a pea and mange tout. Sugar snaps are long and have bright green skin. They are crunchy and contain lovely sweet and juicy peas. Because of these big, round peas the sugar snaps are somewhat more rounded than the mange tout.

Sugar snaps are a pea variety eaten whole in the pod. Fresh sugar snaps make a snapping sound when the pod is broken. They have a sweeter flavour than garden peas; in fact they are the sweetest of all the pea varieties.

The plantations are situated at high altitudes and at sea level. The ideal temperature while growing the sugar snaps is around 12 degrees Celsius during the day and a minimum of 4 degrees Celsius at night. It takes an average of 65 to 70 days from sowing to harvesting in these climatic conditions. Sugar snaps are harvested when they have a length of 8 cm, at this length the sugar snaps have a nice green colour and are deliciously crunchy. They are handpicked within 2 days. The sugar snaps get a quality check in the pack house and are packed in different packaging units.
Mayan Pride Project
Guatemala suffers from high unemployment rates, emigration and poverty in rural areas. There is little work for the growers. However, there are still opportunities as Guatemala has a perfect climate to grow high quality vegetables. Natures´ Pride and its supplier Ghortex, who has been trading and growing sugar snaps and mange tout for years, have joined forces to increase the production of local growers.
