  • Shiraz mangetout pea

    A modern British bred, purple podded mangetout. I found the plants to be healthy although a little slow growing, height to about three and a half foot maybe four at a push. Flowers are in pairs a pretty two-tone purple, crops well with short spacings between flower stems. The pods are good size and stay eat-able for a fair while. Taste, I found somewhat disappointing, not very sweet and with a definite antho twang, but I've only ever eaten them raw so they might be better cooked?
