Do you ever buy fresh green peas?

Do you eat the shell or only the actual peas?

I bought some a few weeks ago and although some of them had very tiny peas inside, the normal ones were delightful.

They are totally different to buy frozen peas and I love to shell them and eat them raw. However they are very expensive.

I can't remember the last time time I had fresh peas. Must be years ago. Don't see them often in the shop either.
I haven't done that in a long time, but now that you mention it I might buy some next shop. I like shelling them. I grow some of my own peas, but not very many. It's mainly so the kids can enjoy picking them.
Only the peas.
I love shelling them.. I find it so relaxing.
Oh, no. I once bought broad beans. I know they're not peas, but they're the closest I got to encased peas. Never again.
by Vee
Oh No!!!!! Broad beans are absolutely NOTHING like the sweet peas from the pod!!! I could eat the latter all day long! Do give them a go if ever you get the chance?!
by Jules
Jules, it's not the taste. I just cannot be bothered with the whole peeling of the pods.
by Vee
I have not seen them much of late, and the price is a tad expensive.Somehow I just don't buy them.
When I was younger, it was the only way to buy peas.
Now I guess frozen have become the norm, but really I DO love fresh . :)
I have not seen them in the supermarket for a long time. When I have picked them from the garden I eat the shell and the peas. The shell can be too fibrous if it has been on the plant too long.
If I see them in the shop I shall probably buy some, but I doubt I will cook them as they are so good raw.
Oh! What delightful and delicious memories of growing up this question invoked!!!! We would buy these by the pound(half a kilo!!) and I think we ate more during the shelling process than what we managed to cook! These days I see them so very rarely and though they are dreadfully expensive, I do spoil myself by buying some, just to relive my happy youth!!
I LOVE fresh peas from the pod so much!! I have to make do with Snow Peas these days though as they are readily available, and also affordable!!!
No. Not very often. They are usually too expensive. I think we get spoiled by the cost and convenience of frozen veggies, which are just as good for us nutritionally as fresh. My mother used to grow fresh peas and they were so delicious !!! Nothing compares to home grown. Mmmm !! Now I feel like some !!! I'll have to go get some if the price comes down.
I buy frozen peas. My parents grow fresh peas in their garden and we used to love eating them raw when we were children.
by AJ
I do buy them when I see them, if they look nice. I have trouble getting them into the pot to cook . . .

They physically make me sick so haven't eaten them since a child. If happen to forget to tell a waiter when dining out, "no peas" I won't eat anything on the plate until I've picked all of them off the plate. Luckily the Chinese restaurant we go to does not have peas in their fried rice, hence the reason we don't change restaurants.
My husband sometimes buys peas. He shells them, and we never eat the shell, only the peas ...
No, I haven't bought the the normal peas in years. Frozen may not taste as nice, but they're just so handy! There is 1 sort i used to buy for stir-frys, where you leave the peas in the shell, but I haven't bought those for a long time either, as I can't get to a fruit/veg shop anymore, since shopping at Aldi.
