Spring Blush Snap Pea (70 Days)
The Spring Blush Snap Pea pods are green, tinted with a distinctive raspberry pink color while offering the same alluring bi-colored flowers, vigorous vines and ornate hyper tendrils like Sugar Magnolia and Opal Creek all developed from the same breeder, Alan Kapuler Ph.D. Sugar snaps were first developed in the 1950’s from a cross of a snow pea and shell pea; over sixty years later we now have these delightful, diverse varieties for us to grow and enjoy in our gardens. The Spring Blush Snap Pea is a lovely addition to any variety, providing a colorful array of delicious snap peas.
