Best Tasting Peas!
Ok, so after the 'best noo potato' thread, here is the BEST TASTING PEA thread.......
I'm eating peas now - and I put in some Early Onward which didn't germinate that well (I sowed them very very early!), and then sowed some Kelvedon Wonder. I've noticed that the few Early Onward plants have produced bigger pods (with smaller peas - at the moment anyway) BUT the peas are much sweeter that those from the Kelvedon Wonder.
Don't know about cooked as they haven't got as far as the kitchen yet!
Let's hear your views, grapes!

I've only grown Kelvedon Wonder Hazel. They germinated and grew no probs. None have been cooked. So sweet I just eat them raw. But nothing to compare them with. Interesting question though. AS discussed on another thread, would be good to compare varieties. I'm up for a pea trial.
From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

And what thoughts on including Mangetout and SugarSnap Peas in this section too, or should those have a thread of their own?

I've never grown PEAS, and am just 'itching to', so would love advice on best tasting variety.
I've grown Mangetout 'Delicata', and it really is lovey picked young and fresh, well worth growing.And can't report yet on the Sarah Raven 'Purple Podded Mangetout', because it's only 8inches high!
And for the first time ever this year, we've grown Sugarsnap Pea 'Jessy'. Well, what a huge success. Just love it..... A really 'meaty' veg with loads of freshness.
Hazel. Start one for each. I think it'll be worth it in the long-run.

I like canoe, very sweet and tasty.

Ooh, that's good to hear Piglet - I just bought some canoe seed and was thinking of planting some for later on. I have read conflicting advice re support for them - will I get away with none in a sheltered spot?Happy Gardening,

BTW - and sorry for being thick - sugar snap are the peas that you can eat everthing? If so, sound like good value in terms of time to prepare, and no waste - hurrah! Unless you are making pea pod wine, I guess........
