My impression (I've read or heard this somewhere, and it bears out my own experience) is that "English peas" is the Southern term for green peas or what most Americans probably just call "peas." Because in the South (and this was true in my childhood, in southern Oklahoma with Arkansas parentage), "peas" standing alone is likely to be understood as black-eyed peas; the less common green things must be distinguished as "green peas" or "English peas." jrking
