snow pea


Also found in: Thesaurus, Wikipedia.

snow pea

n.
1. A variety of the common pea (Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon), having a soft pod that lacks the fibrous inner lining of the common pea.
2. The edible young flat pod of this plant.

[Perhaps so called because peas in general are a cool-weather crop and snow peas sown or planted in the first part of spring can be harvested early in the growing season.]
