Wow - a purple snap pea, tender and delicious! ‘Sugar Magnolia’ isn’t just a famous Grateful Dead song, it is also a beautiful, fine-flavored, edible pod pea with purple flowers. Long hypertendrils (vigorous, multi-branching tendrils) act as extra sturdy supports for 6’-7’ vining plants, creating an airy structure that helps prevent mildew. Some of these open-pollinated peas may be speckled with green, or be fully green. This packet sows up to 6 feet.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED.

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°-80°F and again 10 to 12 weeks before your average first frost date. 

In mild climates, sow in fall or winter for winter harvest. Best grown in temperatures less than 85°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing; this is not required, but hastens germination.
