Most of our peas, shelling and edible pod, are bush (more or less compact plants) varieties, but we offer a couple taller varieties as well. Shelling peas range mostly in maturity, growth habit, yield, pod size, and flavour for factors to consider in choosing your varieties. Edible podded peas can be snap peas or snow peas, the former being the narrow plump pods, and the latter wide pods often picked flat. Dry peas here are meant to dry in the pods and shell for later rehydrating and winter cooking in soups and otherwise!
