The Q&A Archives: Chinese Pea Greens

Question: In Chinese cooking pea greens are often sauteed and eaten alone or with garlic. Is there a particular variety that is most commonly used or are any young greens satisfactory?

Answer: You are referring to "snow peas," which stay relatively flat and tender. Burpee offers 'Oregon Sugar Pod.' Also, Burpee crossed a snow pea with a snap pea, called 'Sugar Snow,' which is flat when young but will plump up if left on the vine.
