Blue Podded Pea (80 days, Heirloom )

 Dutch Heirloom

Also known as Blauwschokkers. An unusual edible and ornamental pea. The rare color of indigo-blue pods emerge from bi-colored purple and white flowers. Use the newly formed peas like you would a snow pea and later dried, for a soup pea in wintertime meals. Grows to 5-6 feet.

100 seeds

 

 

PLANTING:

Germination-7-14 days

Outdoors- Sow 1” deep and 1-2” apart in early spring with soil temperatures 40-70 degrees.

Harvest- Pick every day for continuous harvest.

Tips- Adding inoculant with rhizobium bacteria will increase yields. Plant again, two months before last frost date for smaller fall harvests. Varieties with vine lengths over 3 feet require support.

Pretty flowers and pods but tough and stringy even when small

The peas grew well and the blue flowers were pretty. The blue pods were a fun change from all green. BUT they bombed as edible snow peas as they were tough and stringy even when just an inch long. Shelled peas were no better: tough and chalky. Hard to beat super sugar snap peas and oregon snow peas.

Eagerly Waiting to Start The Closet Garden!

It's an experiment this year. I am going to try it in my closet under lights, along with other tried-and-true's in my order. I dearly love the Purple Pak Choi, it is something I really look forward to.

Pretty, but inedible

Beautiful plants, but unless you eat them when they're tiny, you must shell them.
