Up Close with Frieda’s Specialty Produce’s Purple Snow Peas


vailable year-round from Guatemala, Purple Snow Peas have deep purple pods with tiny green peas inside, which maintain their purple color when cooked. The crisp and tender eating experience combined with a sweet pea flavor makes it an ideal ingredient in salads and with dips. Add snow peas to stir-fry dishes and soups, or steam to serve as a side dish.

The colorful produce item is also an excellent source of Vitamin C, fiber, and folate. Purple Snow Peas come in 12/6-ounce plastic bags or in 10-pound bulk. Though snow peas have been a staple throughout many ethnic cuisines for centuries, they have only recently been ramping up with mainstream consumers as a delicious snack and a unique and healthy recipe ingredient.
