Description

I generally don’t get excited about edible peas, but I really enjoy growing this one in my garden for two reasons. For one, this sugar snap pea produces pretty deep purple, edible pods containing green peas when mature. Best picked while the pods are still flat (they get tough when they start to swell), I think they are tasty added to fresh salads, used in a stir-fry, or lightly steamed. The plants themselves are quite ornamental, too. The vines usually reach about 6 feet tall, with pretty purple flowers and the purple pods. The plants produce a super-abundance of tendrils too, giving the whole plant a wispy look. The original seeds I started with produced some green-podded plants as well. I’ve removed those as soon as I see them every year for the past few years, and all of the saved seeds I planted in spring of 2021 produced purple pods. I can’t promise that some green-podded plants won’t return, though; I just don’t know yet. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in late June 2021. At least 20 seeds.
