PEAS are commonly green, purple, and golden yellow. They are most commonly the small spherical seed or can also be called as seedpod of the pod fruit. Carefully planted at specific temperature, the plants are best grown best at temperatures of 13 to 18 °C (55 to 64 °F). With this, they grow mostly in cooler, high altitudes, tropical areas. After planting they reach maturity in 60 days after planting. In the early times, they were grown from their dry seeds, where now they are boiled and steamed for their nutrients bioavailability.

Pea grading involves sorting by size, with the smallest being the highest at its tenderness. For nutritional value, peas are starchy, but high in fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and lutein. Dry weight is about one-quarter protein and one-quarter sugar.
