PEAS FACTS: In the home garden, peas should be planted in fertile, well-drained soil in an unshaded spot. The cool part of the growing season favours growth and development. The most common diseases that affect peas are root rot, powdery mildew, and several viral diseases. In the United States, peas are grown in the winter and early spring in parts of the Southwest and southern California.

Commercial production in the United States centres in the northern tier of states, especially the Great Lakes states and the Pacific Northwest. Washington and Idaho produce dry, edible peas used in soup. Dried peas are sometimes ground into flour. Europe and the North American continent produce the majority of the fresh pea crop for table use. Canning and freezing processes vary according to variety, plant size, shape and size of the pods, and period of maturation.
