An old swiss Heirloom with large tender, very tasty snow pea. 5 ft. Purple flowered, vines that need trellising. I was amazed by its vigor, sweet taste, and productivity. Beautiful purple/pink bicolor blossoms are borne on sturdy 6+' vines. The seemingly endless harvest of snow peas stay tender and sweet even as the pods mature and swell. An heirloom native to Switzerland, the name translates as "Swiss Giant". Does needs support.
