Review:

We transplanted this variety at our training and research center in Nicaragua five months into the dry season (no rain for five months). The center is located in a hot, low-land, tropical zone. After two months this variety is much more robust than local varieties. We are looking forward to the harvest. BioNica.org

Review:

This plant is amazing. Last summer the Midwest suffered indescribable heat of more than 90 degrees for well over a month, on top of a killer drought. But these cowpeas from Burkino Faso just plugged along as though nothing unusual was happening. They bore pods steadily until frost killed them. What's more, I didn't have to plant them again in the spring because stray seeds fell from withered vines over the winter (I didn't clean up my garden) and THEY SPROUTED IN THE SPRING. Who would have thought that an African crop, accustomed to hot weather, could overwinter its seeds in soggy cold and freezing conditions? A great plant.

First attempt at gardening since i moved off the farm 20 years ago. These peas resisted mildew after a very wet season and produced well. the beans have great flavor.
