No, this aren’t sweet peas… just normal peas, the most beautiful are heirloom varieties.
The main picture is a variety called ‘Capucijner’, it’s a blue podded grey pea.
The next two pictures are ‘Grijze roodbloeiende’ (Grey redflowering), and this is a snow pea.
The white is a common snow pea (Norli), and the last one aren’t flowers anymore, but already the promise of a sugar snap pea to be (Ambrosia)
