Pea or green pea : family and origin

Récoltes petit-poisFrom the Fabaceae family, peas (Pisum Sativum) are originally from the Middle East and, like many vegetables, have been cultivated for thousands of years. They are grown and enjoyed in many parts of the world (Europe, North America and Asia).

It is eaten in a variety of forms, from fresh peas to frozen or tinned peas. Some types are specially grown to be eaten whole, while others are used to produce split peas, pea flour or animal feed.

Fresh peas need to be eaten quickly, as they tend to lose their flavour and texture over time. Thanks to the very short time between harvest and our freezing process, our peas retain their quality and can be stored for longer.
