Golden Sweet Peas
GOLDEN SWEET PEAS
This is a most unusual pea, said to be from India. The seeds are spotted, the flowers are a striking purple and white, and the edible pods are a buttery yellow. I find they are at their sweetest when the peas inside have started to swell so that you can feel them under your fingers when you give the pods a squeeze. At this point they are great in salads and stir frys. And if you don't manage to get all of the abundant harvest picked, the starchy mature peas can be eaten as well. Our packet contains 1 ounce of pea seed.
