A pea is a most commonly green, occasionally golden yellow, or infrequently purple, pod-shaped vegetable, widely grown as a cool season vegetable crop. The seeds may be planted as soon as the soil temperature reaches 10 °C (50 °F), with the plants growing best at temperatures of 13 to 18 °C (55 to 64 °F). They do not thrive in the summer heat of warmer temperate and lowland tropical climates, but do grow well in cooler, high altitude, tropical areas. Many cultivars reach maturity about 60 days after planting.

Role in series
Peas appear as Land Peas in this episode, where SpongeBob and Patrick mistake "pecan pie" for "peas-in-a-can pie."
According to Mr. Krabs, he used to cook peas when he was head chef on the S.S. Diarrhea, but Squidward thinks he used to cook peas on the S.S. Gourmet. However, Krabs actually cooks the peas on the stove while they are still in the can. This is one of the ingredients used to create The Appetizer.
"One Coarse Meal"
Peas are used to defend the Krusty Krab against Plankton. SpongeBob takes off his Krusty Krab employee hat so Mr. Krabs can pour a can of peas in SpongeBob's hole. Thereafter, he uses SpongeBob as a gun and makes the latter shoot the peas out of his holes and aim them at Plankton, which he does, but winds up failing as Plankton uses a bubble to protect himself.
