Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea

Pisum sativum

Beautiful, unusual snap pea, with good, sweet flavor

Oregon farmer and free thinker Alan Kapuler, aka Mushroom, has been growing, saving, and breeding new open-pollinated plants through Peace Seeds for decades. His varieties, like the twisting, outstretched hyper-tendrils of this purple sugar snap pea, have become intertwined with multiple generations of his family tree: his children are also seeds people. Combined with the delicious and abundant shoots and tendrils, which are also edible, these snappy purple pods are everything you need for a salad or sauté.

Note that there is still some variation in the pod color and the appearance of green pods, along with the purple pods, should be expected.

This variety is suitable for growing as a microgreen. 🌱
