Blue Pod Capucijners - Garden Peas
Here is a nice picture of a garden pea variety that I tried recently. They were pretty unusual. Most of the plants had purple pods, although a plant or two had greenish purple pods, one is shown in the foreground. I tasted a couple fresh and they seemed pretty good, maybe not as sweet as new pea varieties, but I mainly grew them for seed the first year to get more seed. The packet only had maybe 25 seeds in it. They did pretty well and were productive.
