A pound of edible pod peas were picked. The first this year. There is a 12 foot row of sugar snap and a 12 foot row of snow peas which are thriving. Both have tender pods which are edible. The snow peas are flat and have very small peas inside. The sugar snap are larger around and have larger peas inside. There are also garden peas which are large and robust but the pod is too tough for eating.

Mange-tout (snow peas and snap peas) are genetically different from standard peas.
Standard peas have an inner lining to the pod which is tough and fibrous; mange-tout do not have that lining.

Yes, inner lining are removed, actually pods are edible, though never had tried, as peas from market are sprayed with insecticide.


Did you pick them prematurely?

I have no idea about growing pea, please correct me, thanks.

Don't pick prematurely. Just pick when suitable in your opinion. I eat many raw.
They are a cold weather crop and are planted when soil is around 15C. Jut place the peas about two inches apart and forget them about one inch deep. They need a sort of trellis. I use concrete 4 feet by 8 foot sheets 6 inch spacing, but simple poles and strings are also fine.

A 25 foot row of sugar snap and snow peas germinated and are growing well. Half the row was of each type, both edible pod. The ground temperature hovered around about 12C during this growing period.

The row of peas are thriving. It has often been around 5 C and heavy rain.
