Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea
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 seedspeople. 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.
