Peas & Beans

Peas & Beans

Snowpeas

Harvest Period --- Spring and Autumn

Generally picked as an immature pod before the peas begin to swell. I actually find the flavour is better when the peas are slightly swollen but not full.

A classic favourite. Only cook ever lightly to preserve a little crispness in the pod.

Sugarsnap Peas

Harvest Period --- Spring and Autumn

Sugarsnap peas produce an abundance of sweet tasting pods.

Generally picked as an immature pod they are crunchy with flavour surpasses that of all other peas.

A great addition to any stir fry.

Shelling Peas

Harvest Period --- Spring and Autumn

Gather everyone around the kitchen table to shell some of these, because nothing is better than freshly shelled peas. Very different to the frozen version most people are familiar with.
Beans

Harvest Period --- Spring

Beans require temperatures between 13oC and 35oC, which is achievable some years and not in others, so a commercial supply is not always available.
Broadbean

Harvest Period --- Spring

Generally grown for Spring harvest but only kept for commercial supply if there is sufficient demand. We use it as a mid season soil conditioner because the great bulk it produces helps boost our organic matter content to improve our soils.
