Blue Podded Pea (Heirloom, 80 Days)

8 reviews

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.

    Wonderful blue peas!

    Mine are reaching to the sky-one row is over 10 feet tall! I'm growing them on supports.I love it that the blue pods are so easy to find-that's why I wanted to try these. Harvest before they get much bigger than 2 inches long-then there's no string along the pod. They are crisp and sweet. The flowers are pretty too.

    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.
