Beautiful purple pods on vigorous 5-6' vines. Aphid resistant. This variety does need about 85-90 days to begin fruiting but is easy to find the pods to harvest. Traditionally used as a dried pea but tastes much better as a fresh shelling pea.

Gorgeous peas. I haven't actually used the peas to eat, but gosh the pods are so ornamental I grow these in the front flower beds now. Lovely pea from the Netherlands withstands the heat and humidity of the southeast very well. Trouble free vigorous vines require support.
