The Pea is the common name for a round green bean of the annual leguminous vine Pisum sativum.

The most common pea, the garden pea is generally eaten without the pod that contains several of the small round peas. If sold fresh these peas will be kept inside their pod, but are often removed  from the pod if sold in cans or frozen.

In most parts of the world the garden pea is often eaten boiled and accompanying other vegies as part of a main meal or used to make pea soup.  In Japan and other Far Eastern countries, such as Thailand, Taiwan and Malaysia, the garden peas are often roasted and salted, and eaten as snacks, in Japan the snacks are often coated in wasabi source as well.

Other varieties of peas also exist such as the snow pea and the snap pea. these peas are eaten pod and all and are often used in Asian stir fries. The snow pea is eaten before the pod inflates and therefore look quite flat. The snap pea is eaten after the peas have partly matured and have inflated the pod.
