A colourful mixture of Golden Sweet, Oregon Sugarpod and Shiraz - 45 plants (15 of each variety):
Golden Sweet - Attractive plants with pale green leaves, red leaf nodes and mauve flowers that are followed by an abundant crop of sweet tasting, golden-yellow 9cm (3½") long pods. Height 180cm (6').
Oregon Sugarpod - A delicious ‘Mangetout’ Sugar Pea with long, fleshy, slightly curved pods. Gather while young and cook them whole! Height 105-120cm (3½-4').
Shiraz - This British bred variety boasts pretty bicoloured flowers and flat purple pods that are best picked young and eaten raw, steamed or stir-fried. The purple pods are rich in the antioxidant anthocyanin (though the colour fades to dark green when the pods are steamed or boiled). Good resistance to powdery mildew and good tolerance to downy mildew.
