Can You Eat Uncooked Sugar Snap Peas?

Sugar snap peas can be eaten without being cooked. Raw uncooked sugar snap peas are an easy low-calorie, healthy snack.

Ripe sugar snap peas should be bright green in color. A mature snap pea will also make a snapping sound when broken in half.

Fresh sugar snap peas can be kept safely in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. The strings can be removed by snipping the ends and pulling the strings on both sides.

The sugar snap pea is a cross between the traditional pea and the snow pea. The entire pea is edible, including the pod that houses the seeds.
