My Mangetout is flowering. Actually, I had totally forgotten that it’s a purple variety until I saw the first flowers this morning. They really are amazing. And I love the way that you can see all the viens on the petals of the purple varieties.
When the pods form they have a unique dusty aubergine colour that is deep and seductive. And the taste is just as fresh and crunchy as regular Mangetout. And I must remember to sow some more before the Spring is through.
