  • Fresh peas might cost less and taste fresher while in season from May through mid-July.  
    • To avoid waste only buy what you need, since fresh peas only last a few days in the refrigerator.
  • Frozen and canned peas are available all year.
  • For the best value buy frozen peas in large bags that you can reseal, or portion out what you need in smaller freezer bags or containers.
  • Choose low-sodium canned peas. Use the food label to find canned peas with less sodium. Rinse and drain the canned peas to cut more sodium.
  • Sugar snap peas and snow peas may be least expensive at a farmers’ market.
  • Peas can be enjoyed year round– fresh, frozen or canned.

❁ Peas are a good source of vitamins A and C.
