Peas, Green

(Peas, green)  Peas are the small spherical seeds, or the seed-pods of the legume, Pisum sativum. Each pod contains several peas (raw seeds). Although peas are botanically a fruit, as are all legumes, they are treated as vegetables in cooking. Only about 5% of the peas grown are sold fresh; the rest are either frozen or canned. Frozen peas are preferable to canned peas as they retain their flavor and have lower sodium content.  We usually buy frozen peas for convenience, but fresh green peas in the pod are nice to buy locally when they are in season.  See the nutritional chart for raw and cooked green peas.
