oh no!!! white chalky powder on my snap peas

Post  staciz on 7/15/2010, 7:58 pm

this can't be good. i just went out to water and pick some snow peas for our dinner and they look horrible. we just had some a few nights ago that were delicious. now the peas themselves are spotted in black and the leaves have a white powder like substance caking them.

are they diseased? safe to eat? any thoughts??

It certainly does look like powdery mildew. I'm sorry.

You might want to pull them, and, if you have room, start some new ones? From what I have read, it seems that peas on the West Coast are less likely to get p.m.

I am guessing that it is because of the sudden heat. It is too late to plant new but you can do a fall planting in a month or so. I do not think the powdery mildew makes it dangerous to you if you have some ripe ones and are able to wash it off.
