Magnolia Blossom Sugar Snap Pea

By: Meriel Bradley

This is a very pretty sugar snap pea bred by Dr. Alan Kapular.

The vines grow to about 8 feet and produce light green pods with a purple stripe down the side.

The flowers are a lovely two-tone purple making it a perfect plant for ornamental kitchen gardens.

In my zone 5 garden, I plant in early April and then in mid-summer for a 2nd fall crop.

Planting Tips

Direct plant as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring

Provide pea supports or netting about 8 feet tall to support the vines

Peas like cool weather so plant again about 2 months before the first frosts for a fall crop
