Because they are legumes, there is no need to fertilize snow peas. In fact, legumes make their own fertilizer and are often grown as cover crops to replace lost nutrients to soil. However, snow peas, like most varieties of peas, are climbers and grow best with support of a trellis, fencing, or beanpole.
When temperatures reach a steady 70 degrees, rate of growth slows and plants begin to die. Harvest peas when pods are about three inches in length but still flat. You’ll need to use your snow peas soon after harvest since they quickly lose their sugar content after they’re picked.
