Mangetouts are a kind of peas which are flat-podded. They are cooked and eaten together with their pods when the peas inside are still small. Kenya mangetout, like the rest world over, are used in a number of dishes and recipes. They have several nutritional benefits such as richness in Vitamin A, C, and K. Vitamin A helps in growth and vision while Vitamin C helps in fighting infections. Vitamin K on the other hand helps in the formation of strong bones. Mangetout are also rich in folate which is required by pregnant women to help prevent neural tube defects in developing foetuses.
There are two main types of mangetout which are grown in Kenya. The first one is the flat-podded type which has very large pods and little seeds. The second is the sugar pea type which has fleshy and rounded pods. Selina Wamucii exports both types of mangetout.

Sugar snaps have been grown in other areas of the world, including the Mediterranean regions, but Kenya sugar snaps are grown on the slopes of Mt Kenya, which provide ideal growth conditions. These peas grow best in cool, moist conditions, but tend to be damaged by temperatures exceeding 30 degrees and by frost, at cooler extremes. Because the temperature varies with altitude, these peas are located on mountain slopes at the ideal temperature. The optimal climatic conditions help Kenya sugar snaps to thrive, making Kenya an ideal choice for importers of quality sugar snaps.
A wide variety of sugar snaps are exported by Selina Wamucii including;
