The Purple snow pea is two to three inches in length, with a deep purple outer skin that encases petite, flat, green peas. The Purple snow pea pod has an overall flattened shape and smooth skin. Once the inner peas become visible, this is when the purple snow pea is at its best eating quality. Purple snow peas offer a slightly sweet flavor and meaty texture.
The Purple snow pea has a peak season in the mid-fall and throughout the winter months.
The Purple snow pea is a member of the Fabaceae family and botanically known as Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon. The Purple snow pea is utilized as a vegetable in the culinary world though botanically speaking it is technically a fruit due to the fact that snow pea plants blossom prior to producing a pea pod.
