Carouby de Mausanne pea is a delicious chinese style snap pea that is crunchy and sweet.  I obtained the seeds from Will Bonsall in Maine from the Scattered Seeds project.

This seed is said to originate from Mausanne near Avignon in Southern France.  An easy to grow snap pea with beautiful flowers it will charm anyone who sees it.  These peas a delicious harvested when they are very young and tender, but what makes them exceptional is that they retain their crunchy sweetness when they grow and do not get all tough and full of fibre when they are closer to the end of the season.
