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 type 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? Beautiful, vigorous plants.

What are the cons? Tough. Insipid flavor

Review:

I like peas which can be eaten in the garden. These were beautiful and easy to find, but did not begin to compare to plain old dwarf grey sugar. Picked when peas just began to show in the pod, the pods were so tough and stringy that I choked. Opened a few that were a little bigger and the baby peas were exquisite! Too much work for baby peas. I will probably find out how they are as soup peas.

What are the pros? Beautiful side dish

What are the cons? Get tough if not picked young

Review:

I first planted these last year while living in Houston. I got beautiful vines but not one pod, while the Cascadia Snap and Oregon Snow produced like crazy! This year, back in East Texas, I sowed them again along with Cascadia and Oregon. They were the first to produce and have continued to do so. Only thing I can surmise is that they were planted in heavy soil in Houston but in lighter compost here. They also have lovely purple blooms. Another note: pick them very small if you plan to eat them like snow peas. They quickly produce peas, The peas are great if shelled, but pod gets tough quickly. I love to saut? them with green snow peas for a beautiful vegetable side. Mine have kept their purple color when cooked.

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.
