Peas – Sugar Snap (Organic)
Crunchy and sweet round podded sugar snap pea variety with no shelling necessary.
Eating Sugar Snap peas fresh from the plant on a sunny day is one of the best things about growing them. This is a particularly sweet, crisp and juicy variety producing an abundance of edible pods over a long season.
The plants grow tall and will need support. We eat them raw or cooked in stir fries. They are so flavoursome that you will just want to keep growing them.

Luffa – Luffa aegyptiaca (Organic)£2.65 Out of Stock
Luffa – Luffa aegyptiaca (Organic)
Annual climbing plant producing cucumber like fruits that can be made into a natural sponge. It’s part of the cucurbit family originating in India and produces 30 to 40 centimetres long fruits. Whilst the young fruits are actually edible, the mature ones can be boiled or dried to remove the flesh, revealing the sponge like fibres.
Germination can be tricky, needs hot temperatures constantly between 24 and 30°C and a long season to make a sponge.
The Luffas should be ready to harvest in October, once the skin of the fruits starts to wither. Harvest and stack them up somewhere warm, dry and airy, making sure to turn them. The skin should reach a point where it can easily peel off leaving the fibrous inner. Shake the seeds out and give a thorough wash to clean it. The luffa is likely to have natural brown markings on it; shop-bought luffas are bleached. (Approximate seed count – 15)£2.65
