Growing Snow Peas, also Sugar Peas, Mangetout, Chinese Peas

18 Aug 21 Yvonne Maynard (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
My snow peas look healthy, are growing well and just starting to flower and produce some peas, however some of the peas are curled up and a little dry looking. I have eaten some and they are lovely, but would like to know what causes them to curl. Also the leaves have always been curled like they have not completed opening. I am also confused about how much water to give them as I used a moisture meter and it recorded the soil as wet, so I only water them about once a week deeply.
