The parsley purple passion pea possesses partially purple pods.
Haha what?? Im so confused lol. But intrigued. Post a picture of the seeds after you harvest them. If they are crossed i might be able to tell. All of them are partially purple? Lol. Weird.
... wait... parsley? Purple passion pea was not a parsley type. I wonder if you got some purple pod parsley bred from Alan Kapuler. Someone sent me some last year and it got mixed in some of my other purples. But not purple passion...
Haha, WELL, if no explanation can be found... 1. I am not always organised with my pea saving lol. And 2. Perhaps i have more bees crossing things than i thought. Lol.
No, I didn't. But not because of the weather; I got really sick this spring, and have had to skip lots of crops. I've just barely got my squash in, and still have lots to plants; I guess it will be a test of short season for these things.
I checked the three plants that actually germinated this year and found them covered in sweet, delicious pods this morning, much to my surprise. Nothing like your abundance but good eating nonetheless! It's been getting cool at night and that's been a saving grace for the plants.
Growing in a coastal zone 7a in the Northern Hemisphere. Hot humid summers and cold snowy winters. Plenty of rain. Sandy loam topsoil over clay subsoil, whatever the glacier left behind when it made Long Island.

So, i have a double mystery. I got a good return on the Purple Passion hybrids i planted. The first mystery was they had purple pods, which they did not have before. The second mystery is that nearly ALL the seeds are green!!! I only got 4 purple seeds from the whole lot!
I Wonder if some jumping gene is at work here. .. very odd.

I'm trying for a few fall peas. Planted last week. With the heat and rain some like NAP gene are already sprouted.
At the new apartment. Not a lot of room/time, but half of the community garden plots are empty/overrun with weeds and thus are mine.
I planted a plot of basically 10 Hopi White squash and 4 trellises that i double planted for a total of 8 pea varieties. Which are: Fast Growing, Early Flowering, Yellow x Orange pod F1s, Orange Hybrids (F2), Yellow Podded, Red Snap, Nap Gene, and Cochleata (the other potential trait to have open flowers).
I'll also be trying Fall peas, my Spring peas having been wiped out by rabbits; I'm trying to kill the one currently in the veggie corral that has cleaned out my lettuce seed plants and my sprouting spuds; so frustrating to shoot them (as infrequently as I can, being a lousy shot), as I understand they all have warbles; don't know how that relates to just using the hind legs. I'm not an experienced game fan, so I'm fumbling here.

Fast growing peas have really shot up. I wonder if they have an odd mutation that causes this. Last time i grew Nap gene peas they also stretched out quicker than normal, though perhaps not as quick as these.
ethin, how did all your peas turn out from this spring?
