General information:

The rather hard outer shell is not for consumption. Once opened a string of round, tender, sweet peas rolls out. Exquisite when boiled, butter-steamed or tossed raw into vegetable salad. The younger the pea pod, the sweeter the peas. Excellent fiber content, also vitamins A and C.
