Atchafalaya Swamp Pea

1 Review | Write a Review
The Atchafalaya Swamp Pea was selected decades ago by Blane Bourgeois - seed collector extraordinaire! It draws its name from the Atchafalaya River Basin, located in Southern Louisiana where the Atchafalaya River meets the Gulf of Mexico. After Blane's passing, Joseph Simcox found this variety while working through Mr Bourgeois' collection that had been donated to Baker Creek Seeds by his family. Thanks to Joseph, Blane and our grower, we are proud to offer this incredibly rare variety to gardeners this year. The stocky plants grow low to the ground with deep dark green foliage. Abundant pods are about 8 inches long and plump full of speckled seeds that are two-toned black to tan. We have a limited supply.

What are the pros? A quick flush of pods

What are the cons? Just one set of pods and done.


Some seeds become rare for a reason. I was first very impressed with initial pod set, but they produced no more after that. The biggest issue is that they are almost impossible to shell out, even when bone dry and other varieties would shell themselves, these require picking the pod off from each pea. Yes they are tasty, and you should give them a try, but I just imagine that someone who only grew these being introduced to another variety and never going back
