DESCRIPTION 

Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea

Pisum sativum

50 seeds

Oregon farmer Alan Kapuler has been growing, saving, and breeding new open-pollinated plants through Peace Seeds for decades. His varieties, like the twisting, outstretched hyper-tendrils of this purple sugar snap pea, have become intertwined with multiple generations of his family tree: his children are also seeds people.

Combined with the delicious and abundant shoots and tendrils, which are also edible, these snappy sweet purple pea pods are everything you need for snacking right off the vine, in a fresh salad or for a light sauté.

 

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

Direct sow as soon as the soil can be worked until last frost date. Peas thrive in cool weather, so do not delay planting them. Trellis for best yields and healthiest plants. Frequent and steady harvests of the plump, deep purple pods will help plants to continue to produce.
