Shelling peas offer some of the highest sugar flavor available in peas. Pods should be shelled and only the pea seeds should be eaten. Shelled peas are most tender and flavorful in cool weather.
The Alderman Pea plant produces huge pods, each filled with 6-8 peas that are easy to harvest and shell and have that popular fine fresh pea flavor!
The very versatile Blue Shelling Pea can be picked young and eaten raw as a colorful snow pea pod or left to swell and harvested as a plump pea for cooking.
