Peas – Golden Sweet (Ecologically produced)
Vigourous multicoloured plants with green leaves, red-magenta leaf nodes, cream-pink-purple-blue flowers and golden-yellow pods. Golden Sweet makes a very unusual attraction in the pea patch. The colour changes of the flower from cream to purple and blue when they mature is extraordinary. When the pods are still young they’re very sweet and crunchy, as the pods get bigger they’ll become more stringy which makes them better for cooking rather than eating raw.
It was a real pleasure growing Golden Sweet in our pea trial 2018 and to observe all the different colours. We found that the whole plant has a golden glow to it once it starts flowering. It was probably one of the tastiest mangetouts that we had when picked young.
