A beautiful and ornamental pea that produces lovely purple-blue pods that can be harvested young and used as a snow-pea, or let mature and shell for fine soup peas. This unique variety dates back hundreds of years in Europe, and is still popular in parts of Europe and Canada. It also produces lovely purple flowers! Fun to grow and good to eat, the perfect crop for kids and those who like color.

What are the pros? fast growth.. blue color.

What are the cons? poor flavor of fresh pea pods

Review:

the plants grew great. but the flavor was not there and they were tough.. even when picked pretty early.. im going to let the rest of the peas mature for dried peas or even shelled peas to see if it does better that way. it id s pretty vigorous grower but you do have to keep a eye out for powdery mildew and other mildew issues if your area gets alot of humidity.

What are the pros? Purple flowers and pods

What are the cons? poor production

Review:

The entire packet of seeds grew with a 90% germination which made me extremely happy and hopeful. I planted half as many sugar ann peas as these. I thought is was going to be wonderful, easier to find during picking, great growth. Then they produced a whole 5 pods out of more than 50 blooms. It was a total waste of my limited urban gardening space.

What are the pros? Pretty flowers, easy to pick

What are the cons? Flavor, low productivity

Review:

This was a nice pea to see in the garden and to add to a pea mix for our CSA, but I was unimpressed with the flavor and the plants didn't produce many peas, unlike all the other six varieties I planted last year. As a pea lover, I will save my garden space for a more productive and better tasting pea. The flowers are beautiful and attract bees.

Review:

I love this pea, its tender and sweet as young pea, and grows a large soup pea harvest. No strings when young. This isnt a Chinese style flat pod pea. So all those reviews about it being a manoutout pea don't make any sense. I've grown this pea from several vendors and it has a young plump sweet pod, then goes on to be a soup pea. Looks beautiful in the garden. Grows well in a container or soil, drought tolerant, and makes a lovely soup pea. This is my favourite pea. Mine grew in part to deep shade, were started in the hot summer and grew until mid spring when they were removed.

What are the pros? Great Color Bees Loved Flowers

What are the cons? Taste, Stringy,

Review:

These peas were very easy to germinate, grow and maintain. They did not get watered for a whole week while I was out of town and my housemate 'forgot' to water, and they were still fine when I got to them. The flowers were very popular with the bees and are a beautiful pink, white and purple color. The peas themselves, however, were terrible! I tried them young, mid, and shelled...nasty bitter metallic flavor and stringy consistency. I can say, on an odd note, if you can get past the flavor-chew one up and spit. Your spit will be fluorescent purple for quite a while which I found to be rather amusing.
