A marvelous innovation in sugar snap pea breeding from Dr. Alan Kapuler, the first ever purple podded sugar snap pea! We love the dusty puple blue pods that really pop in a sea of green foliage. These vigorus 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? 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.

Review:

I live in 'cold' Sweden, but it's been a very hot and dry summer this year. No sign of mildew yet. I grew 2 types of Sugar Snaps and this was the earliest, but as soon as the pods get a bit bigger they get boring. The young ones were quite ok, Not as good as Sugar Snap though. It still flowers, so I might get some new nice ones out of it yet. Some plants gave green pods instead of purple and they tasted much better. I also tried the yellow Opal Creek, which was this years winner. Much sweeter and can be eaten fully ripe. Pods are a bit smaller and it was slightly later. Still - that is the one I will grow again next year, not this one. I like when they have purple flowers though and both these do, so that is really nice (both types of snow peas I grew did too). I also love when it's easy to see the peas - as it is with purple and yellow pods, so I'll have a go with Spring Blush next year, even though purple podded peas has not impressed me when it comes to taste.

Review:

These peas are delightful! I love filling my garden with unique versions of vegetables rather than run-of-the-mill varieties. These peas have a beautiful color and, as other reviewers have mentioned, this color makes them easy to spot. I only planted about half my seeds the first time around (Due to space constraints), but these grow so fast I think I have time to plant another round of them so I can enjoy them again. I got a lot of bright purple pods, as well as some greenish-purple and just plain green ones, but they all had great flavor (in fact, the green ones were usually the most robust and felt like they were bursting with peas! I'm not sure, but perhaps I let them go too long while I was out of town). I will definitely plant these again next year - they've earned themselves a bigger plot in the garden, too!

Review:

These are a winner. Strong growing, with *beautiful* purple flowers & purple tinted shoots. When the purple peas start growing, it adds some really lovely early color to the garden. In addition, these peas grow a solid 6-8' high. So while I think they produced as many (if not a bit more) than our usual sugar snaps, they were actually easier to pick at height (rather than crouching down). We always worry about rabbits, so the quick start helps in that regard, as well. Finally, picking is super easy (and why I planted them to begin with): the purple stands out for easy recognition. (I'm always leaving green snap or snow peas accidentally b/c they blend in). And oh, they taste delicious! Sweet & tender. These are making it into my yearly planting.

Love these. Delicious, gorgeous, and easy. Flowers in all shades of white, pink and purple. Most pods are purple but a few are green too.??
