This highly productive, 5-8 foot tall vining snap pea has eye-catching bicolored purple blossoms that really shine in the garden. These pretty flowers are soon followed by an abundance of well filled, crunchy-sweet, plump pods. Keep the succulent pods picked (they are delicious right off the vine) and the vines will keep producing pods over a long harvest season. Sow again mid to late summer for fall harvest. Magnolia Blossom vines easily twine up any vertical supports making it quick and easy to harvest them.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early to mid-spring, plant peas in full sun in well-worked, fertile soil. Sow seeds 1 inch deep and 3 to 4 inches apart in wide rows or bands 3 inches across, spacing the rows 2 feet apart. Provide supports for these climbing 5-6 foot vines at planting time. Protect from marauding birds with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Cold and wet early spring weather may affect germination, so if first sowing doesn’t germinate evenly, replant right away as new seedlings catch up quickly. Sow again for a fall crop about 2½ months before first expected fall frost.

 

GROWING NOTES

These are hypertendril peas, meaning that the vines will produce long twirling tendrils in place of some leaves. This trait helps increase air flow so there is less disease potential. Use netting or wire trellis to support these heavy bearing tall vines for easy picking. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered and mulch to conserve moisture. Water at the base of the plants to avoid mildew.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest only when peas are mature and round in the thick walled, juicy pods for the best developed flavor. Savor their sweet crunch fresh from the garden (kids especially love them!) as a snack or slice into salads. Pick pods regularly and you’ll have longer production of new ones. To cook quickly, pull strings from pods and sauté in a little oil just until pods turn a deeper green color.
