Sugar peas (edible podded peas) possess the tenderness and
fleshy podded qualities of snap beans and the flavor and sweetness
of fresh English peas.
When young, the pods are cooked like snap beans; the peas are
not shelled. At this stage, pods are string less, brittle,
succulent, and free of fiber or parchment.
However, if the pods develop too fast, they are not good to use
like snap beans, but the seeds may be eaten as shelled peas and
are of the best flavor before they have reached full size.
