Climbing, snap pea cross between a Victorian purple podded and Oregon Sugar Pod II. Enjoy these peas in all their phases! Flowers are light and dark purple and seeds very diverse in shape and pigmentation. Wrinkled seeds can be cuboial, cylindrical, or pyramidal and range from dark green to orange. Smooth seeds have fine purple speckling. Edible purple pods start out straight and flat and plump to be a somewhat round snap pea. As an unimproved, diverse variety, it still occasionally still throws up recessive green pods. But we love it just the way it is!!!
This variety was bred by Andy Davice in Oxford, UK around 1998, and was acquired by the Seed Savers Exchange.
