I grew the Petit Provencal peas, and the plants were small, as described, but the peas were huge and tough. What happened?

This variety of pea needs to be picked young, before the peas grow fat in the pods. All peas will continue to grow until they are picked, and many varieties tend to get tougher all the while. Next year, visit your garden every day and try picking the pods at different stages. You'll find the perfect size for your taste.
