Sugar Magnolia snap peas, anyone? Empty Sugar Magnolia snap peas, anyone?

I just ran across these peas on the Burpee website, and I found them so beautiful! I can just imagine them whole, in a salad. But it's crazy to want to grow an edible just for it's looks alone. Isn't it? thinking  Or is it? These are SO pretty. But of course, I'd like to think that they taste as good as they look, so I was wondering if anyone here is growing them, and what you think.

No, not at all.  Our eyes are attracted to brightly colored fruits.  I found them while looking for Oregon Giant snap peas and these were just too good to pass up.  I hope others tried them in the spring and maybe they could leave a review.  Did you grow them?  They are in the ground now for my fall garden, we had a high of 86 F today.

I grow things all the time for the eye candy factor; makes your non-gardening friends jealous!  Sugar Magnolia snap peas, anyone? 3170584802  That’s the fun of it; getting great different varieties than one can get at the grocery.  

Those are pretty but I am confused by the picture/description;  the photo seems to show a shell pea, but the description is that of a sugar snap.  I would grow either!

I grew these and the plants reached over 8 ft!  The pods were very high up, making harvesting very difficult.  The pods were also smaller than I my usual Oregon Sugar snap peas.  It was more plant than peas.  I would pass on these and not grow them again.  The pods were a nice deep purple color and if you left them too long on the vine, they would start to turn green.

Did anybody else have have a different opinion?
