Mangetout

Mangetout are the pods of the pea plant. They are harvested very young, when the peas are barely developed. This ensures the tender and delicate flavour. Mangetout resemble sugar snaps, but are thinner and less sweet than sugar snaps due to the lack of peas. Mangetout are often boiled or stir-fried briefly so that they stay nice and crisp. But the mangetout is also very tasty when stewed.

In addition to Peru, Guatemala is the main source for our sugar snaps. From late October to mid-May, sugar snaps are grown in this Central American country. In Guatemala we work with 743 small growers who are united in a cooperation.
