What type of pea pod ?

Asked July 20, 2015, 10:55 AM EDT

I bought a pea plant I thought was a sugar snap pea. They are curly looking pods and don't look like the typical sugar snap peas that I have seen. Can you help me identify them. The picture on your website looks like them

We think this might be a snow pea, based on the thin margin at the edge.
Snow peas are generally harvested while still thin.
Take a look at this link: http://extension.umd.edu/growit/vegetable-profiles-green-peas

Thank you

Can I still use the pods that are overgrown? Can I cook the peas as if they are regular green peas?

You can shell the pea and eat them as normal peas.If harvested young you eat the whole pod.
