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? 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.

What are the pros? Pretty, unique

What are the cons? Lacks sugar

Review:

Was excited about a purple sugar snap as they're interesting looking and make harvesting easier (stands out). Unfortunately, the flavor on these was not even close to as good as on the other sugar snaps I grew. In a bowl of mixed peas offered to guests, these were sampled then avoided.

What are the pros? Purple is pretty

What are the cons? tough, tasteless pods

Review:

These peas have an interesting look, but not much else. This is the second year I have grown them, and compared to my other snap peas, these are... lacking, to put it kindly. My son likes the color, but even the pods didn't have great consistency in that--many that appeared after ward were only mottled or speckled purple, and looked more like dirty peas than the deep purple. Additionally, this is the second year I grew them, and the second year I have found the pods to be thick, stringy/woody, and lacking in flavor. Though the advertising highlights the benefits of having edible tendrils, I don't see this as a benefit. I feel that maybe any energy that goes into tendrils takes away from the pods and peas... but I'm just grasping at straws. Meanwhile, the snap and snow peas growing beside them were quite tasty... maybe they are an acquired taste. I will not grow these again; I will gift the remaining to our local seed library.
