Garden pea is a glabrous, hardy, annual, climbing leguminous plant. It has a non-edible fibrous pod that bore edible round seeds. The seeds are a highly nutritious food, having a high protein and fibre-content. Its stems are roundish and hollow that are covered with a waxy bloom. The leaves consist of one or more pairs of opposite leaflets. The young tips, called pea shoots, may be harvested and cooked as a pot herb. Pea shoots are a delicacy in Chinese cuisine.
