A pea is a spherical seed of a pod. There are several peas in one pod, they can be green or yellow. The pea pods are botanically a fruit that develops from the ovary of a pea flower.

It is an annual plant that grows in the cool seasons. There are two cultivars of peas, low growing and vining cultivars.

The vining cultivar can grow between 1-2 meters high and need a support or a dry branch to climb.

Peas are planted from seed and eaten immature, either fresh or frozen. Canned and frozen peas are available all the year round.

Dried peas / split peas are used in soups or in some countries roasted and salted and eaten as a snack.

Peas are high in fibre, protein, vitamins A, B6, C and K as well as iron and zinc.

The oldest pea was discovered on the border of Burma and Thailand. It was nearly 3000 years old.
