Rwanda sugar snap or snow pea/ snap pea (Pisum sativum var. saccharatum) is one of several legumes that are consumed with their immature peas. Like mange-touts and French beans, they are ‘eat-all,’ meaning that their pods are edible for they undergo harvesting when the seed is still in its early development stage. In appearance, the pod is relatively small at 10 centimeters maximum. There are usually less than 10-minute seeds inside the curved or flattened out the edible pod.
Each serving of sugar snaps provides 0.7 times or 72% of the daily requirement of immunity-giving vitamin C. There is also 16% or 0.16 times of the daily requirements of iron, a good enough level for proper oxygen transportation in blood. The mineral concentration is led by manganese for bone health with its 12% margin or 0.12 times of the daily value. The phosphorous margin stands at 0.8 times or 8% of the daily requirements while teeth enamel-strengthening calcium is 7%. Potassium, vitamin K, thiamin and pantothenic acid are 4%, 24%, 13%, and 15% respectively, suitable for among others, blood pressure regulation and wound healing.
We source Rwanda sugar snaps from the Northern Province where the weather is cool and wet. They grow under the fertile volcanic soils of the province next to other cash crops like French beans. On our part, we draw contracts with family growers with less than 2 acres of land. We ensure that they use pesticide sparingly to prevent the overload of chemical residual. We also encourage them to practice organic farming, principally the use of farmyard manure as a soil enrichment.
We harvest Rwanda sugar snaps when they are just a week shy of their 2nd month from the planting date. This is for the early maturing varieties for the late setting cultivars need four months to reach maturity. We usually go for pods that have flattened out with little or no bulge. We snap them off by the stalk. Any mature pod with a bulge remains behind to grow into a garden pea.
After delivering the dawn harvest to the warehouse, we pre-cool it to maintain its freshness and improve its shelf life. Otherwise, the crop will lose its weight every 2 hours at room temperature. We check whether any pod has been in the sun for long to prevent the chances of the crop infecting its healthier counterparts.
We pack Rwanda sugar snaps in produce boxes with a basic capacity for 4.5 kilos. Our special wrapping material known as polymethylpentene provides perfect protection for the 20 bundles in every box. We also keep the top sides of the boxes well-ventilated for aeration purposes. Our top ice placement cools the produce through its outbound journey.
We store Rwanda sugar snaps in the temperature range of 0 to 5 degrees Celsius. This preset gives the legumes a shelf life of about 14 days. Our vehicles come with cooling equipment on board to preserve the produce during the short journey from the north to Kigali International Airport. Give or take, the cargo should be at your destination in 24 to 48 hours after dispatch.
