I enjoy all the one's grown in my garden, so much so, most never make it to the kitchen. They're fairly bog standard one's though - Pea's Early Onwards, Sugar Snap, mangetout - Delikata and for the first time last year - Purple Pea.
Apart from the latter the others grew well from seeds sown early March, must be the soil and being sheltered but pea's and beans do really well in my garden. We had a couple of very chilly nights too after they were planted out mid April. The latter fared better from seeds sown in April and planted out when the seedlings were ready. Pea's Early Onward and the Sugar Snap variety me thinks were frost hardy.
They were ready to pick early July, as I was eating them before I went on my jollies, very tasty
