Snap open the deep purple pods and see the bright green juicy interior flesh sweet enough to eat right off the vine. Pods are best harvested at 3-4". In addition to the pods themselves, the vines are particularly ornamental with vivid green foliage, long tendrils, and large bicolored violet blooms. Vines reach 7'.
Peas prefer well-drained soil rich in organic matter and need to be trellised.
