Mange tout (pisum sativum)

A stringless form of peas, which is headed and tailed and consumed complete with pod (hence the name). They were developed in China, and were first recorded there as early as 1597; although it is thought that peas in general were first cultivated in Turkey. Mange tout are also known as snow peas, and larger varieties sugar peas or sugar snap peas.
