The green pea is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables. They are also prized as one of the earliest crops to come out of the garden. Peas grow well in partial shade or full sun. Different varieties produce either edible pods or garden peas for table use. Peas may be used in a variety of dishes and the edible pods are most often steamed or sautéed for a delicious side or main dish. The peas may be used fresh or dried and are an excellent source of nutrients. Be sure to let some of the peas mature and dry on the vines and save the seeds for your next planting.
Each packet contains one ounce or about 90-100 seeds.
