I grew field peas this year for the chickens and our own use. They are yellow and pefect little balls. My question is; what kind of pea do I grow to have green "split" peas like the ones you would buy in the store.

Poinsettia writes: Although they belong to the same family as beans and lentils, they are usually distinguished as a separate group because of the ways in which they are prepared. The different types of peas are all spherical, a feature that also sets them apart from beans and lentils. Dried peas are produced by harvesting the peapods when they are fully mature and then drying them. Once they are dried and the skins removed, they split naturally.
