Pretty in garden and in salads
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy, early, lovely

What are the cons? Mature peas starchy, crowded

Review:

Like the other reviewers, I love these as fresh young pods in salads, where they add crunch, flavor, and color! The flowers of this bushy pea are the loveliest I know. Of course I also love to munch on the pods as I am gardening. Mature peas get very squished in the compact pods until they are almost little cubes--pretty funny. I don't eat these as shelled peas because they lose their sweetness before they reach a useful size. But I don't want my garden to be without them, either. They produced for quite a long time. My plants get maybe two and a half feet high in the dry climate where I live. I think they grow taller in more moist conditions.

Coolest pea I have ever seen
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Prettiest pea I have ever seen

What are the cons? Not the tastiest pea

Review:

These are stunningly beautiful and when planted in a grouping will hold themselves up in a bushy mass. The flowers are pretty and the peas themselves are showy on the tops of the plants. A small percentage of the peas came out plain green, but they actually created a nice contrast against the dark purple. These would look lovely as an ornamental in a flower garden. They are not the tastiest peas, a little tough. Pick them as early as possible to avoid the stringiness, and grow another variety of peas for your main pea crop. I'd still recommend them because they are so pretty & easy to grow. Definitely plant them where you can show them to your friends. I grew mine in planter boxes in front of my house. I loved seeing them every day when I came home.

What are the pros? Harvest quantity

What are the cons? cant think of any

Review:

I have been growing different peas for 3 year and I and have NEVER had as many pods as this has given me. They almost seem to grow additional plants from themselves which I have never had any other variety do in my zone. Now it could have been the crazy weather we have had, or just that these are really awesome!

Garden Pea Desiree Dwarf Blauw
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Beautiful color, tender, easy

What are the cons? Mature prefer sweet pea

Review:

These were a joy to see in the garden with the purple pea pods and the bright deep pink flowers! I'd had bad luck with the previous green pods being stringy after frozen &I used for stir fry but these were great as long as you picked them before they got more than about 1 1/4" long. I did get a few green ones, not sure why? Was wondering if cause planted right next to my sweet peas? I did try a mature purple pea, but will stick to the sweet peas for shucking mature, as I didn't care for them for that. But what a sight!

Easy to Grow 5.0

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.
