Wow, a purple snap pea, tender and delicious! 'Sugar Magnolia' isn't just a famous Grateful Dead song, it is also a beautiful, fine-flavored, edible-pod pea with purple flowers. Long hypertendrils (vigorous, multi-branching tendrils) act as extra sturdy supports for 6'-7' vining plants, creating an airy structure that also helps prevent mildew. A few of these open-pollinated peas may be speckled with green.

Beautiful plants - foliage, flowers and peas. Every single pea from the Botanical Interests pack germinated in 2018 and the gorgeous purple pods with their tender green peas were so tasty! If they weren't so prolific, none would have made it out of the garden to the table, because they were our favorite "gardening snacks"!

I highly recommend this pea variety. They are both sweet and beautiful. They did grow to 7 feet so be prepared. I try a new varieties of plants each year. This was the first year growing this variety of peas and this will now be a yearly plant in my garden.
