Pretty purple & pink blooms. If you're going to grow peas, you might as well grow some pretty ones. They taste good too.

A small snow pea. Very good if picked at the proper time but grow tough and fibrous quickly. Pick before the seed form. I prefer the snap peas because they are more profific and allow much more leeway in harvesting. I have not grown snow peas since the late 60's.
