New to my garden this year are these magnolia peas, coincidently planted where we took out an old magnolia tree. They grew to about six feet on cage and lasted into late July producing easy to find, medium size purple pods with great flavor. Have tried most types of sugar snap pea varieties in my 35 years of gardening and was happy to find a new type with some heat resistance. Always seemed just when peas started getting productive, a heat wave moved in and shut down production. Not this time and we had ninety degree plus heat and dry. Pod may be a little tougher then other varieties when raw, but if steaming or cooking them you won't notice a difference. On my permanent list of seed orders.
