Growing Calendar for Asparagus Pea Seeds
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
These unusual plants are very attractive with a low bushy form, grey green leaves and brick-red flowers. They'll look equally at home in flower borders or an ornamental kitchen garden.
The entire pod is edible, but is best eaten young, when about one inch long and tender.
Not surprisingly, the flavour is similar to asparagus and you cook it the same way too - steam lightly, drain, toss in butter, or pop into a stir-fry, delicious!
