Peas are a popular, tasty, cool-season crop. Here’s how to grow peas in your garden!
There are three varieties of peas that will suit your garden and cooking needs:
- Pisum savitum, which includes both types of garden peas: sweet peas (inedible pods) and snow peas (edible flat pods with small peas inside).
- Pisum macrocarpon, snap peas (edible pods with full-size peas).
Pea plants are easy to grow, but have a very limited growing season. Furthermore, peas do not stay fresh long after harvest, so enjoy them while you can!
