Weeping Pea Tree?

Hi friends,

I inherited a weeping pea on my property.. It's often used in landscaping. I believe it's edible (read that somewhere but not totally sure) and since it's part of the legume family I'm going to go ahead and assume it's a nitrogen fixer...

Anyway, at the end of the season it went crazy with peas and so now I have a ton of these babies:



Just wondering - does anyone know if growing these from seed is possible/a good thing?

Has anyone done it before? If so, how did you germinate it?

That looks really similar (but not the same) as a golden chain seed pod. You can grow golden chain from seed no problem. I like golden chain It has long beautiful flows of flowers the bees love and awesome beautiful hardwood.
