One of the easiest vegetables to grow is Mangetout. It’s also one of those vegetables that, if you grow it yourself, will taste completely different than anything you will buy at the supermarket. There’s no hint of bitterness or aftertaste which can be the downfall of shop-bought Mangetout. I think it tastes almost exactly as sweet as freshly podded Peas but has the advantage of being bigger and crunchier than a bowl of Peas.
Brilliant with fresh humous. At this time of year you’ll be harvesting at least a bowlful everyday from a modest clutch of plants. I wouldn’t be without it. Next year, I need a taller support though. I always forget how big the plants are and they end up trailing on the ground after they have scaled my woefully inadequate Pea-sticks.
