Zipper Peas and how to grow them?

Has anyone here grown Zipper Peas? They are an early bush type of pea. I planted mine from seed on May 8th, and they are very full and lush with leaves. I have just noticed some of the pea pods growing. How big do they have to get before you pick them? Any advice in general on gardening, would be most appreciated.

  • Are zipper peas any different then a regular pea? They are ripe when the pods are full and teh peas are round. They should be picked daily, old peas are tough and not as flavorful.
