Sugar snaps

Sugar snaps are fresh green legumes that you can eat entirely. They originated from a cross between peas and snow peas. Sugar snaps taste sweeter than snow peas because of the presence of the peas, hence the name.

Sugar snaps and snow peas are sometimes mixed up. The difference between snow peas and sugar snaps can mainly be seen in the shape: snow peas are flat and sugar snaps are convex. The taste is also different; sugar snaps are sweeter and snow peas are soft and refined in taste.

Sugar snaps, or sugar snap peas, taste fresh and sweet with a crunchy bite. You can eat them raw, try using them in a salad! Yex provides active promotional support for this wonderful product and we will be happy to help you with promotions and activities!

Usage tips Sugar snaps

Wash the sugar snaps before use and cut a tip from both ends. Pull off the fleshy thread that runs along the seam. Sugar snaps can be cooked, but also stir-fried, steamed, stewed, or blanched for use in salads. Unlike snow peas, you can eat sugar snaps raw.
