The first purple-podded sugar snap pea

Over 15 years of work by Oregon USA based plant breeder, Dr. Alan Kapuler, has resulted in Pea ‘Purple Magnolia’ – the first purple-podded sugar snap pea. Pick them before they grow large to enjoy them at their best, they peas also very tasty when immature. These crunchy pods have a good, sweet flavour and make a colourful and tasty raw addition to a salad, for snacking or steamed and served as a side. Easy to grow on trellis or other growing supports, the strong hyper-tendrils cling well and support the long, climbing stems. Height: 1.8cm (70”). Spread: 25cm (10”).
