Peas belong to the vegetable family known as legumes whose plants produce pods with enclosed seeds. They are divided into two categories: those with edible pods and those without them.
An edible-podded pea is a cool season vegetable. The peas are planted in the spring. They grow on a vine and require a trellis for support.
Peas will be 2 to 3 inches long when ripe. They should have a crisp pod encasing four to six peas inside. Snow peas have a flat pod while sugar snap peas have a rounded pod.
The soft and tender pods of snow peas or sugar snap peas are often eaten raw. They may also be stir-fried or steamed. Pod peas are nutritious and filling.
