Wrote Elaine Sciolino in an April 25, 2012 New York Times Dining section story, "I learned... that one way to test the freshness of peas is to press down on a pod and gently move around the peas inside. (Fresh peas will squeak when they are rubbed together)."
Other lessons from Wahid: "The smaller the peas, the sweeter and more tender they are; fat, stuffed pods can mean that the peas have become tough and mealy and past their prime."
