Cowpeas, or crowder peas are legumes that do well in sandy soil and in areas of low rainfall. They are delicious! Think black eyed peas without the dirt aftertaste. They are great by themselves or with some ham or bacon.
These cowpeas were found in my grandmother’s deep freezer after her passing in 2016. They were marked as from her father, who passed in 1990 and was a farmer in Ripley, Mississippi. The original seeds are at least 35 years old. I don’t know the variety, but I planted some in 2020 and they grew like crazy here in Missouri (zone 6b). I have been collecting the seeds for eating and replanting.
You will get a package of 25 seeds.
