Purple Podded Capucijner Peas


We didn't plant a ton (just one short row) and they are moving slooooowly, so whatever we get will most likely be saved for next year's seed. The flowers are pretty fantastic, though—much brighter and bolder than the typical pastel colors that pea flowers tend towards.

The flowers are beautiful. What do the peas taste like---english pea, black-eyed, etc.??

I just love the names of plants. This one sounds like something Lewis Carroll would come up with.

So: you guys get these seeds from Amishland? I know you'd mentioned a while back that you might buy her small seed quantities only to propagate the seeds. That makes sense but selfish me I want a decent harvest to make up my mind if I even like the plants enough to propagate them.

At first I thought that pea pod was damaged. How amazing that's a purple podded pea. Does it taste any different than the typical green podded peas?

I wish we'd grown more in our garden, but at this point all we've got left (that survived) are herbs. Lovely blog.
