Pisum sativum, the common pea (also known as the garden or field pea), is an herbaceous annual in the Fabaceae (formerly Leguminosae) family, originally from the Mediterraean basin and Near East.It is a cool season crop now grown in many parts of the world. The garden pea is widely cultivated in Northern temperature regions and is an easily grown vegetable found in many back yard gardens.
Pisum sativum (Family: Fabaceae), as known as green pea or garden pea, has long been important in diet due to its content of fiber, protein, starch, trace elements, and many phytochemical substances. It has been shown to possess antibacterial, antidiabetic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antihypercholesterolemia, and antioxidant activities and also shown anticancer property.

It is in flower from May to September, and the seeds ripen from July to October. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Occasionally bees.

Pea (Pisum sativum L.) is one of the first domesticated crops, and was the model crop for the foundational genetic studies by Gregor Mendel, which he first reported in 1865. Pea is grown in most temperate regions of the world with annual production over the past decade of 10-12 million tonnes of field pea and 14-17 million tonnes of vegetable pea.
Garden pea (Pisum sativum) is a widely cultivated plant, and hundreds of forms have been developed. Its domestication dates back at least 3000 years in southwestern Asia, and seeds have been found in archaeological sites dating back at least 6000 years. Escapes have been reported in scattered locations across North America, including New England.
