Spring Blush Tendril Pea

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
70 days. Incredible new blushed green and purple podded snap pea. Flowers are stunning in bicolor purple and white, but the amazing thing about the plants is their hyper-tendril habit—a new type in pea breeding. Spring Blush throws an occasional green-podded plant, but the flavor, two-toned color scheme and unusual habit are to good to wait any longer! (If you save your own seed, select only plants that have the pink blushed pods) Another superior variety from Alan Kapuler PhD.

What are the pros? Vigorous, pretty

What are the cons? Bland taste

Review:

Good germination and vigorous vines. The plant and pods are beautiful. The taste is rather bland compared to other varieties. They do produce tons of tendrils as described. However, like the pods, the tendrils from other varieties were sweeter and tastier. I probably wont keep it in rotation for next year, but if I had more space in my raised beds I would consider one or two plants just for looks and variety.

What are the pros? Pretty, prolific, tasty, easy

What are the cons? Not quite as sweet as others

Review:

Will definitely grow these again. They're stunning with bicolor burgundy and violet flowers. The tendrils made these great climbers and they did really well on a trellis net affixed to bamboo poles. These were so much easier to deal with than my other peas. They grew to be about 4-5 ft tall before I pulled them. Lots of pink blushed pods (with some solid green ones mixed in). Flavor was sweet but not super-sweet. Still great for snacking and salads. Living in Texas (9a), I planted these in October. They were just starting to get buds when we had a freak freeze/snow the first week in December. This put a halt to any winter peas, which we can usually count on. About 80% of the plants survived that freeze and two subsequent ones despite being uncovered and on an exposed trellis. They started putting out peas in earnest in early February through mid March. They were very prolific but started slowing down once we started getting March temps in the high 80s.

What are the pros? Grew great and produced well

What are the cons? not all were blush

Review:

I grew these as well as a purple variety and although these grew and produced well, only like half had the blush coloring and the taste wasn't anything special. The purple were a little sweeter.

Review:

I love this pea. Did great in our early spring, it was the first to sprout out of the 4 varieties of peas I planted with it. I loved it so much I planted it in fall. It performed well in fall and did not mind our winter frosts either. This grows the sweetest tasting peas and have a beautiful pink and purple flower. I look forward to them so much that they don't make it in the house. I snack on them in the garden while I'm outside.

What are the pros? Gorgeous flowers and pods

What are the cons? Pea Pod Flavor

Review:

As pictured, this is a vigorous vine with beautiful pink flowers and attractive blushed pods. It climbed our 5 foot trellis and pulled it down! It produced abundantly in the Pacific Northwest. However, out of 5 varieties of peas that we grew in Spring 2015, it was by far our least favorite for eating. We also grew Sugar Ann and Sugar Sprint Snap Peas which were both crisp and sweet. The Spring Blush was not sweet and was even described as tough and bitter by most of my taste testers (kids). We would recommend it as an ornamental and possibly as an edible tendril plant, but don't recommend it as the best tasting pod.
