The Spanish can get close, though!

Not English language and not pre-1500, but I picked up "Ancient Agriculture" 
last year or early this year.  It is a compilation and translation of Gabriel 
Alonso do Herrera's "Obra Agricultura" from 1513.

There's a mention of Spanish Peas on page 70.  Would those be the same as the 
type of peas discussed in this article?  I can't tell from the description in 
the book.
