Produce - Peas
The pea is most commonly the small spherical seed or the seed-pod of the pod fruit Pisum sativum. Each pod contains several peas, which can be green or yellow. Pea pods are botanically fruit, since they contain seeds and develop from the ovary of a flower.
Green peas are fairly low in calories and contain several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They're also high in fiber and protein and rich in polyphenol antioxidants, which are likely responsible for many of their health benefits.
