Buying Tips

Peas are sold fresh in the pod, dried (either whole or split), frozen, and canned. Canned peas are a duller green because their chlorophyll is destroyed by the heat of the canning process. Both fresh and frozen peas are superior to canned for nutrition and flavor. Look for fresh stems when buying fresh peas.

Varieties

Among the more than 1,000 varieties of garden pea, the most common are smooth peas, the type generally sold frozen, and the wrinkled variety, which is generally canned. Other varieties include the sugar snap pea and snow pea, both of which have edible pods. Beyond the garden pea varieties are the gray or field pea, primarily used as fodder crop, and the wild Mediterranean pea sometimes called the oasis or maquis pea. Dried peas are available whole or split, and are either green or yellow.
