A marvelous innovation in sugar snap pea breeding from Dr. Alan Kapuler, the first ever purple podded sugar snap pea! We love the dusty purple blue pods that really pop in a sea of green foliage. These vigorous vines can reach up to 8 feet tall in the garden and cover a trellis so nicely. The purple blossoms and profuse tendrils make this an incredible edible ornamental--so dainty! The flavor is perfect, not too sweet, with a great snap!

What are the pros? Flowers

What are the cons? Taste all peas were green

Review:

Loved the beautiful flowers, would grow these for ornamental purposes. Tendrals are cool looking. The taste was not there, bland. The pea pods never turned purple. Very prolific and tall. Love the look. I will stick to the Mn.swenson peas from now on.

Pretty But Not Worth It

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Low-Yielding, Not Sweet

Review:

This one was a bit disappointing. I was excited by the beautiful pictures, and indeed this variety is just as pretty in real life as it is in the photographs. It's honestly stunning, and a lot easier to spot on the vine than a green pod. However, I was underwhelmed by the flavor. It was much less sweet than green snap peas or shelling peas are. It's fine for cooking, but I'd rather grow a more multipurpose pea. Additionally, the yield was much lower than I'm used to for green pea varieties. This one was definitely fun to grow, but I don't plan on growing it again.

What are the pros? beautiful, prolific

What are the cons? tasteless, woody, dry

Review:

These were the most beautiful ornamental peas ever! The flowers, tendrils, and peas were gorgeous and prolific, climbing and covering a trellis of 8 feet in height. Hummingbirds were attracted to the flowers. Unfortunately the peas were tasteless, woody and dry, making them difficult to swallow and almost inedible. Best use was to add beauty and whimsy to flower bouquets.

What are the pros? The purple peas are pretty

What are the cons? Low producer, lacks taste

Review:

I have planted these twice and only get half the peas as I do from the other varieties I have grown and they have to be picked early or they become tough and tasteless. If you are looking for an ornamental plant that is easy to grow than this will.be perfect. Very disappointing as I had searched for these because I had a locally grown purple snow pea while visiting Charlston and they were sweet and tender. These are not them.

What are the pros? Ease of growing, taste

What are the cons? Low production

Review:

I'll keep it simple, these plants grow very well, the peas taste good (although not the best I've had by any means) if you pick them before they get too big, the plant is kind of idiot proof as long as you keep its roots wet. The production was not great, I'm not extremely disappointed but it could have been better. Had no disease or condition issues until it just got too hot and dry in the summer for them to survive. Would grow again, but in the meantime I'm going to try to find something a bit sweeter and more prolific.
