Shiraz Pea Seeds

Introducing the 'Shiraz' Mangetout Pea, a British-bred culinary delight that stands out with its stunning purple pods. This variety is not just about good looks; it offers a sweet and crisp taste that elevates the humble pea to a new level of flavor.

The eye-catching bi-colored pink and purple flowers develop into striking flat, purple pods that are best harvested young. Whether eaten raw, lightly steamed, or added to stir-frys, these peas retain a unique crunch and taste that is far superior to store-bought alternatives.

'Shiraz' is also a healthy choice, rich in anthocyanin antioxidants. This climbing variety reaches an impressive height of up to 1.2 meters (about 4 feet), requiring support from canes or netting.

It's a resilient plant, showing good resistance to both Powdery and Downy Mildew. Perfect for vegetable plots or as a gorgeous addition to ornamental gardens, the 'Shiraz' Pea Mangetout is a must-try for garden enthusiasts.

Common Questions

How Do I Maintain the Purple Color of 'Shiraz' Pea Pods?

The purple color of 'Shiraz' pea pods is most vibrant when they are raw. Light steaming can retain some color, but boiling tends to fade it to dark green. For maximum color impact, use them raw in salads or quickly stir-fry them.
