Project Description

Pea, Pisum sativum, is an annual herbaceous legume in the family Fabaceae grown for its edible seeds and seedpods. The pea plant can be bushy or climbing, with slender stems which attach to a substrate using tendrils. Each leaf has 1–3 pairs of oval leaflets and can reach 1–6 cm in length. The plant produces white, red or purple flowers and swollen or compressed green seedpods which can be straight or curved. The pods can range in size from 4 to 15 cm long and 1.5–2.5 cm wide. Each pod contains between 2 and 10 seeds, or peas. The pea plant is an annual plant, surviving only one growing season and can reach 30–150 cm in height. Pea may also be referred to as garden pea, English pea or green pea and likely originates from Southwest Asia.
