Although once regarded as an exotic crop, mangetout, literally, eat-all, peas have become a popular alternative to standard shelling varieties. They are grown in the same way, but harvested while the pods are still flat and the peas inside barely visible. There are several varieties, all very similar. Plants are very hardy, and may be sown in autumn to overwinter and give early pickings the following spring. Crops remain usable for several weeks before the peas eventually swell and make the pods coarse and fibrous. Support the heavy plants with twiggy sticks. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
