Collage of Pea Sprout Pictures

Pea Sprouting Collage Large

One of the most satisfying things (besides the actual harvest of course) is to see your plants begin to sprout after you have put some much labor into preparing the soil and planting all your seeds. My peas are up and doing great. I wanted to share with you a collection of photos of my different varieties sprouting. Even in their earlier stages you can definitely tell that these all aren’t the same type of pea.

British Wonder Shelling Peas - your standard shelling pea variety, looking pretty good. On the bottom of the photo you can see some Borage that sprouted from seeds from last year when I planted them. Kind of looks like a cucumbers at this point.

Green Beauty Peas  - Another pea that has a redish stem. I got these from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and they are said to produce green pods that stay super tender even when the peas inside start to mature.

Kelvedon Wonder Shelling Peas - a nice sturdy plant with a little straight tendril starting to form towards the top back.

Magnolia Blossom Pea - Another hyber-tendril I am growing. The stem is red and you can see some tendrils already poking out on the right side.

Royal Snow Peas - Nothing out of the ordinary looking yet for this purple snow pea variety. They sprouted quite nicely.

Spring Blush Peas - This is a snap, hyber-tendril variety, that will produce green peas with a red blush. The stem of the plant is a red, fading to pink. I also am noticing tendrils already forming, which is rather fast compared to peas I have grown in the past.

Sutton's Harbinger Shelling Pea - This one is so cute. It is growing straight up in the air with nicely round leaves.

Amish Snap Peas - This variety pre-dates the Sugar Snap Pea. Germination was said to be low on this packet I got so they overfilled it. While it didn't germinate the best, it certainly still wasn't the worst - better that I hoped for.

Capucigner Pea - a purple podded pea given to me by another Michigan gardener. The upper part of the stem has a slight purple coloration to it. These sprouted really well.

Corne de Beliter - A snow pea variety that as of now seems to have germinated the worst out of all my varieties. Hopefully it's just a little slower.

Golden Sweet Snow Pea - Here is a great shot of a plant just emerging from the soil. You can't tell in this photo but the stem has a grayish-purple tint to it. The plant will produce beautiful purple flowers, and then golden sweet peas.
