QUESTION: My husband and I love the pea pods found in Oriental cuisine. Are edible-podded peas difficult to grow?

ANSWER: Edible-podded peas are easy to grow if you plant them at the correct time. In most of Southern California, the right time to plant edible-podded peas is in the fall or winter. In all except our coastal areas, if planted in the spring, they will not produce well.
