HONEY or SUGAR PEAS Mut dau
Edible peapods measure about 2-4 inches long and about 1 inch wide, with a stalk at one end and often the remains of a flower at the other end. Honey peas are rigid and oval in cross-section, more like shell peas or inflated balloons, with no external evidence of the peas inside. (In contrast, snow peas are flexible and flat, with bulges where the peas are growing.)
The smaller the pod and the smaller the peas inside, the more tender and sweet the peapods. The smaller type of snow peas - which are more flexible in the fingers and often still have bits of flower at the tips - are generally younger, sweeter, and more tender. Honey peas are the most crisp, meaty, expensive and rare.
