Details

Black Eyed Pea Bean is also known as Black-eyed Pea, Cowpea, Southern Pea or Field Pea and are most famously associated with the U.S. South, especially known as a symbol of good luck on New Year's Day. The Black Eyed Pea is probably one of the most loved garden favorites because it is practically effortless to grow, vigorous and produces 6" to 7" inch pods on threading 24" to 40" inch bushes. Wilt resistant and easily prepared, this variety is known to have been present in the Americas since prior to the 1770's. In fact, Black Eyed Peas were a meal time favorite of President Thomas Jefferson. Consumed as green shell or snap beans, steamed, fried or in baked dishes, Black Eyed Peas are commonly dried like a winter bean as well. Harvest fresh at 45 days or dry at 60+ days for best storage keeping. Packet: 35 seeds.
