Is there southern peas more suited to green shelled stage eating
I planted black eyed peas cause I love black eyed peas. I do not digest beans well in the dry stage (even if soaked). So I have been eating these in the green stage, either as a snap, or a green shelled bean. I do not like them as snaps, and they are not much better as green shelled beans. I am just getting them in, since the summer was so hot they sort of when dormant on me, since it was over 95 degrees most of the summer.
I also have planted rice peas, and texas longhorn (supposed to be the same as or similar to big red ripper) Do either of these taste better in the breen stage? I am a new gardener, so sorry of the questions seem silly. These have not come in yet. should be soon though.
I read the descriptions in the seed catalogs, and not much clues if various southern peas would work well as a green shelled bean.
I do wonder if my california black eyed peas would taste any better in the dry stage. If not, I plan to not even pick them anymore.
Any help in the this area would surely be appreciated, thanks.
