What are the pros? show-stopping, vigorous vines
What are the cons? a bit later than Sugar Ann
Every time I am at my community garden plot, someone stops to ask about these peas. Even people growing peas ask, "What are those?" As pointed out in another review and in the catalog, not all of the peas are blushed pink. The catalog suggested saving the seeds for the blush ones. They are lovely either way and, yep, tasty too! These are easily 6 feet tall and the tendrils twine together so thickly they are almost self-supporting. I say almost because they are too tall not to trellis, but man they are strong! The blossoms and ornate tendrils are pretty enough to cut a few for a vase. These have both periwinkle and bi-colored pink/raspberry blooms. After I placed them in a vase, I came downstairs to find the blossoms on the dining room table and little peas in their place. And the vines were still twining and reaching up. It's like they are out of a fairy tale-- Jack and the Pea Stalk or something. We found them faster to mature than Cascadia, slower than Sugar Ann. But worth the wait!
