I’m growing mangetout and peas on my windowsill to plant out soon on plot 51. It’s a great feeling when the shoots come through and now they’re growing fast.
Snap peas (Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon), also known as sugar snap peas, are a cultivar group of edible-podded peas that differ from snow peas in that their pods are round as opposed to flat. The name mangetout (French for “eat all”) can apply both to snap peas and snow peas.
