Hi! yep, the green peas are recessive, the yellow ones are dominant. Seems to be a typo in your textbook.

I have learnt that green is recessive. All the internet researches show me the same. Here is one of them. As you can see the relation is 3:1 from yellow's view. Green just came into being by two recessive allels, depicted by two small letters (yy). You can see so easily that the color yellow is the dominant one.

If you have still your doubts, do it by yourself and breed some peas with yellow and green.
