Our top picks for veggies and fruits to grow at home, from tomatoes to greens
‘Oregon Giant’, an edible podded pea, is a must-have plant for our cool-season garden. Pods are tasty in stir fries, and they add crunch to salads.
We prefer them fresh off the vine (pods taste very sweet). Best of all, this variety is a bush type, not a vine, with extra large pods. All zones.
When peas reach harvesting size, pick all pods that are ready. If seeds are allowed to ripen, the plant will stop producing.
