Peas – Chapter 16 | Official Grain Grading Guide

Classes, types and varieties

Classes

Peas are designated into two classes, Green Peas and Peas other than green. The method of determining the class of a pea is by cotyledon colour and, in the case of Maple, Austrian, Vienna and Dun peas, seed coat and cotyledon colour.

Marrowfat peas are considered as Peas, other than green.

Samples of peas are graded according to the food pea grade determinant tables unless designated by the shipper as feed peas, and then the feed pea grade determinant table is used.
