Purple Podded Peas - Blauwschokkers
Purple Podded Peas? Why not?
This Dutch heirloom is a favorite in Europe for making tasty pea soup. The flowers are bright pink and the pods are purple, very pretty in the garden. Pick them early for some jazzy snow peas (very showy in salads), or use the mature peas for tasty soup. They have a rich creamy flavor.
Kids love crazy vegetables and will eat these right off the vine.
This unusual heirloom dates back hundreds of years in Europe, and is quite popular in Northern Europe and Canada. It does especially well in cool climates. Perfect for fall planting. 60-80 days.
