What are ediblepodded peas

Seeds of edible-podded peas, also called snow or Chinese peas, are exceptionally sweet and tender. The pods are more tender than those of other peas, but become fibrous unless picked when young. Both dwarf and tall cultivars of edible-podded peas are available.

Some of the edible-podded pea cultivars have high sugar content and fairly thick-walled pods. Unlike the Chinese peas, these are best harvested when the seeds are more mature—when the pods are filled out. Sugar Snap (tall) and Sugar Ann (dwarf) are two popular cultivars.
