Blue Pod Capucijners Pea (pre 1800)(Pisum sativum cv.)
The Blue-podded Capucijner (cap-ou-SIGH-nah) is a hardy pea first grown by the Franciscan Capuchin monks. Its particularly beautiful, bi-colored flowers are lilac/pink and wine-red/purple, fading to blue as they wilt; pods are deep inky purple/blue. It is best used to make delicious, full-bodied soups; also an edible-podded sugar peaGreat long term storage food. Beautiful heirloom pea that is pretty enough to grow as an ornamental for the edible gardening fans, even if you don't like peas. The dark colored pods really stand out against the background of the bright green leaves making them very easy to pick. It is a good choice for children and the elderly. Approximately 15-20 seeds per packet. (read more below)
