Magnolia Blossom Tendril Pea

Magnolia Blossom Tendril Pea

Magnolia Blossom Tendril Pea is a variety that I ordered through Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company to try this past Spring. I was very happy with its performance. I had some seeds left of another variety, Sugar Snap, from last year so I planted some of those, too, and was able to compare them. Both of these peas have sweet, succulent pods that are delicious fresh or cooked. They make a great snack right in the garden!

Peas like cool weather, so they can be grown both Spring and Fall. This pea has beautiful blossoms and, as described, it was very productive. When the heat of summer started to arrive, Magnolia Blossom produced about a week longer than the other variety. The pods were very crisp and sweet, too! It does have more tendrils than most, and the catalog description suggested using them in salads, but I didn’t remember to try that. I’m sure they’d be great, though.

I was so pleased with this pea, I’ve already started putting out more seed for fall. If you’re looking for a sugar snap pea to add to your garden, consider giving Magnolia Blossom Tendril Pea a try.

  1. Sweet Peas are one of my favorites, usually I just stand in the garden and pick them and eat them and they never make it to the table. It gets so hot here fast and they never perform that well for me. This post makes me want to try this variety. Thanks for sharing. Best, Kim

    1. Yes, give them a try and see how they perform for you. My season for cool-weather plants seems short, too, but these produced well and I got plenty. Let me know what you think.

  2. I had a nice crop of sweet peas in the spring, however very few ever made it to the house. They make such a wonderful snack! I often “caught” the kids eating peas while playing.
    Thank you for linking up!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
