Pea vines are available year round.
Pea vines contain a specialized spiraling stem, leaf or petiole with a thin threadlike shape which is used by climbing plants for support and attachment. There are only a certain lineage of legumes that form evolved vines: peas, sweet peas and fava beans.
Pea vines are the thread, leaflet and blossom of the snow pea, snap pea or sweet pea plant. Their flavor is grassy sweet and nearly identical to the flavor as the typically harvested part of the plant's foliage, the pea pods. They are commonly overlooked and underused as a culinary commodity, but their sweet unique flavor and succulent texture should increase their currency value.
Pea vines can be used fresh or treated as a wilting green; utilizing a little heat, olive oil, sea salt and pepper and the greens are transformed into a substantial element of any savory dish. Finishing the pea vines with citrus brings out flavor and preserves their color.
The earliest and most comprehensive study of pea vines was Charles Darwin's monograph, "The Movement and Habits of Climbing Plants", originally published in 1865.
Peas have been cultivated and used for culinary purposes for over 8,000 years, primarily as a pulse (legume). Foliage is often reserved for live-mulch ground cover, building soil fertility and fodder.
