This morning two of the pea varieties
Let me introduce you to . . .
Curruthers' Purple Podded
Well, just look at the deep colour of the wings! the intricate veining on the standards!
For me, not the most productive of peas (although that may have been down to pigeon attacks in the past) but supposedly one of the best purple-poddeds for flavour. I see Curruthers as a polite, elegantly attired, gentleman gardener. My seeds were originally from a swap with Rebsie, you can read her expert review of Curruthers here.
As you can see in the photo, its flowers are white with beautiful green shading and a very attractive shape . . . I think Mr Robinson is a very handsome chap indeed!
More reports for the Pigeon Proof Pen soon,
