When fresh Green peas are not available or when you want to enjoy a starchier, hardier flavoured legume, dried peas are the perfect choice; they are available any time of the year. The pea is most commonly the small spherical seed or the seed pod of the pod fruit Pisum sativum. Each pod contains several peas, which can be green or yellow. Botanically, pea pods are fruit, since they contain seeds and develop from the ovary of a (pea) flower. The name is also used to describe other edible seeds from the Fabaceae such as the pigeon pea (Calanus cajon), the cowpea (Vigna unguiculate), and the seeds from several species of Lathyrism. P. sativum is an annual plant, with a life cycle of one year. It is a cool-season crop grown in many parts of the world.
