Carouby de MaussaneI’ve got three types of peas on my allotment. Normal ones, a mange tout and Carouby de Maussane sugar snap / mangetout type.

Carouby de Maussane is a tall growing mangetout variety with attractive purple flowers. Large pods up to 11cm long. Good sweet flavour. Height150cm. Very pretty flowers. You could add this to a flower border very easily and people would love it!
Probably not one to mix up with sweet peas though as you don’t want to be eating the sweet pea pods!
