Pea Plants - Blauwschokker
Blauwschokker is an amazingly ornamental pea variety. These pea plants will produce lovely purple flowers and dark purple seed pods, grow it in an ornamental veg garden for an eyecatching display. The Blauwschocker would look equally at home in a flower border!
Pea plants will produce healthy snacks and even tastier meals. Harvest from June to October, eat them young as mangetout, or leave them to mature and shell them like normal peas. Serve your Blauwschokker peas on a delicious platter with dips or hummus for a healthy snack. It’s well worth a try! Alternatively, you can pick from your pea plant to eat raw, steamed or a tasty addition to stir-fries or soups.
Rob says - “These peas could be mistaken for an ornamental if you grow them in your borders - the beautiful purple flowers can rival any sweet pea. But the real beauty of Blaushokker is the seed pods - they are dark purple in colour, so you’ll never miss a pod again! Can be eaten young as mangetout, or leave them to mature. An amazing floral and edible variety, well worth growing.”
