Here is an interesting question about spring produce from reader Evelyn:
I've been looking for the delicious "cream peas" that I grew up enjoying. Living in the South, but haven't found them anywhere. Small, kidney shaped, ivory/green in color, and heavenly. Can you help?
Evelyn, we can't help you much, but we can direct you to the source of the photo above:
• Southwestern Produce
- They say that these peas are "Tiny young peas, green in color, our smallest and most tender pea. Also known as a green acre pea or cream pea."
They actually call them "conk peas." Perhaps you can try growing them?
Readers? Any ideas?
