Stunning violet-blue pods are produced on lovely little bush plants that do not require staking. The delicious peas are perfect for soups and stews, or pick small and these can be used as a snow pea. A great addition from Holland.

What are the pros? beautiful, colorful snowpeas

What are the cons? none

Review:

These grew on long vines that reached the top of my 4 ft fence in my square-foot garden. in another area, they remained shorter. These are great as whole raw tender snowpeas when about an inch to inch and a half long ( small). They can get stringy and tough when bigger- so just cut them into small 1/4 in pieces and toss into a salad. I am excited to try them in stir fry.

What are the pros? Pretty, easy to grow

What are the cons? Hard to chew

Review:

These peas were easy to grow and they are prolific, however, I don't know if it is just me, but the pods are tough and hard to chew. I would really like this plant if I could eat it better. Yes, I too have some green pods, but I think that makes it interesting.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Can't really eat them fresh

Review:

I'm not sure if mine were true because the seeds I got were purple, yet my pods had green peas. Also, mine were not bush peas but had vines. I'm thinking that perhaps my seeds were accidentally hybridized somehow based on what I've read. I will probably buy another packet next year to try to get some true seeds. They are very pretty and worth growing, but bitter so don't try eating them right out of the garden--save them for soup.

Review:

I live in Louisville, KY and so far, my vines have stayed very short - they don't have any kind of trellis and they don't need one. Vines are sturdy. The peas aren't the most flavorful - not sweet like other edible pea pods. I just read about another blauschokker pea available here at Baker Creek that says they are a soup pea, not meant to be eaten raw - I think that might apply to these. They are extremely pretty and I'm glad I tried them.

Review:

These are definitely not bush beans but normal sized climbers. I planted them in the Kansas City area on St. Patrick's day and started picking peas yesterday, so about 11 weeks from planting to eating. The pods are a beautiful dark purple just like the picture and tasty. Pick them small if eating like snow peas, of course.
