Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea ( 70 days )

These deep purple, edible, pods have changed the world of sugar snap peas! First, we liked this variety because of the striking colors; pretty pink bi colored flowers grow into vibrant pods and the showy hyper tendrils (vines have leaves replaced by more tendrils) make for easy climbing and are edible when they are young. Second, when it came time to harvest we a got plentiful amount just from a 4 foot planting and they kept coming! They beat the mid July heat, providing peas after the earlier, shorter day, varieties gave up, which makes this a good one for a succession crop. Grows over 6-7 feet.100 seeds
