These blocky-shaped cowpeas are two-toned with cream and deep brown-red coloring along with some mottling. This variety is not unknown in the south but the origin of its colorful name is somewhat of a mystery. Botanical Explorer Joseph Simcox strongly recommended that Baker Creek Seeds carry this variety after he discovered a quantity of it among the expansive seed collection, being housed at Baker Creek, of the late Mr Blaine Bourgeois, a long time and important seed saver from Arkansas.

What are the pros? Who doesn't like hog brains?

What are the cons? Smaller than your average pea

Review:

I'm not going to lie- I bought Hog Brains Cowpea seed because of the name, but their interesting look won me over in the end. These peas are smaller than other varieties I grow. The pods contain an average of 8-10 small peas per pod. Hog Brains have a similar look to Coat and Jacket Cowpeas. CJ produced a larger pod, and more and bigger cowpeas.
