Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea Art Pack

Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea Art Pack

Colorful Edible Pods

The Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea, scientifically known as Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon, is a delightful addition to any garden, known for its exceptional sweetness and vibrant appearance. This cultivar is believed to have originated in Europe, and its popularity has led to several subspecies being developed to meet the demand for these delectable peas.

Visually, the Sugar Magnolia Snap Pea is a sight to behold. Its vines produce clusters of vibrant, deep purple pods that stand out amidst the green foliage. The contrast between the purple pods and green leaves is not only aesthetically pleasing but also serves as a practical indicator for harvesting when the pods reach their peak ripeness.

Taste-wise, these peas are a true delicacy. They are renowned for their extraordinary sweetness and tender, crisp texture. When harvested at the right time, the pods are bursting with flavor, making them a popular choice for snacking, stir-fries, and salads. Many gardeners and food enthusiasts appreciate their versatility in the kitchen.

Planting Sugar Magnolia Snap Peas from seed requires some attention to growing conditions. These peas thrive in well-drained, fertile soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. They prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Sow the seeds in early spring when the soil temperature reaches around 45°F (7°C) for optimal germination. These peas are a cool-season crop, so they should be planted early enough to mature before the hot summer weather sets in.

Planting & Growing:> Peas perform best in cool weather between 60-75°F; growing season may be extended using shade cloth or frost fabrics. Presoak seeds to help prevent disease and to speed germination. This pea's wilt resistant 4'-5' tall vines should be trellised.

Harvesting & Storage: Peas are usually ready for harvest about 3 weeks after the flower appears and before peas are fully developed in the pods. Regular picking extends production.
