Pisum sativum (55 days) Classic favorite heirloom snow pea. Crisp petite 2.5” pea pods are loved in the kitchen for flavorful stir-fries, salads, and as garnish. Loved outdoors for its strikingly beautiful pastel purple and pink flowers and graceful twirling tendrils; often grown for its ornamental qualities. Flowers have a mild, pea-like flavor; a colorful addition to salads, desserts, or cake adornment. Can reach 4-5' in height; don’t be surprised-- they are not as ‘dwarf’ as their name implies!
