sugar snap peasThe Basics

We grow several types of spring peas: shelling, sugar snap, and snow peas.

Snow pea pods are very flat, with extremely small peas inside. Eat the whole pod!

Sugar snap pea pods have large peas inside, with a thick, crunchy pod. These pods are also delicious whole.

Shelling peas have a thick, inedible pod with very large peas inside. Remove the peas from the pod, discard the pod, and dry or cook  the peas immediately.

In the early spring, we also sell pea tendrils (the baby pea plants before they produce any pods). These are an extremely tasty delicacy– you can nibble on them raw or do a quick saute.
