Although most people consider the green pea to be a vegetable, it is actually a fruit. This is even stranger when you consider that it is a plant that prefers colder weather, which is unusual for fruit plants. The edible part of most pea species is the seeds that grow inside the seed pod although the pod can usually be eaten as well. The small green peas most people are familiar with are actually the immature seeds which are harvested before they mature.

Peas are believed to originate in the Mediterranean basin and evidence of them has been found as far back as the early Neolithic area. Traditionally, peas were grown in order to dry the seeds for preservation and later use in soups, stews, and porridges. Today, peas are generally used in their immature state and are boiled or steamed.
