Snow peas are flat and contain very small peas. The whole pod is eaten and is often used in stir-fries.
Snap peas, also known as sugar snap peas, are a cross between a snow pea and a garden pea. The entire pea pod can be eaten and may be eaten raw or cooked.
Garden peas are the first variety of pea that we have at Muddy Crops, starting in mid June. Also known as sweet peas or English peas, their pods are rounded and firm and need to be shelled before eating the inside pea. These peas are very sweet and can be eaten raw or cooked.
