Pea Plants

Purple Hull Peas

Anonymous added on June 23, 2011 | Answered

I have four pea plants and only one is producing. Right now it only has one large pod ready to be picked but obviously I need much more than that to actually make something with. Can I save the ripe one somehow until I can collect enough for a side dish? Do I put it in the fridge? How long is it good for?

Consistent picking will help encourage production. Peas are best when used quickly after harvesting, but they can be refrigerated in plastic bags and will keep for 2 to 4 days. Both garden peas and snap peas can be frozen, canned, or even dried. They will keep for up to 12 months in any of these forms.
