What are the pros? Nice flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? Bugs like these

Review:

Grew three types of cowpeas this year in College Station Texas. The Big Red Rippers (always a winner down here), White Whipperwill and these (for the first time). These came up within just days beating the other two to sprot by nearly two weeks. They matured first only to get attacked by bugs, yet from 10 seeds after sharing the rest of the pack with friends, we ended up with 1/2 cup of tiny peas jam paked with flavor. We like to grow organic yet if you see the leaves of these turn yellow (in Central Texas at least) look close and find something to kill the thousands of tiny black bugs or they will suck the life out of an kill these plants in 48 hours or less. No biggie as we have a lot of peas this year and the low yield made for a very special and tasty cowpea soup. Will grow from saved seed next year as well.

Review:

This was my first experience growing cowpeas and I started with a packet that I split with a couple friends. So, I maybe had a dozen beans. I harvested at least a cup of dried peas from these plants, so I had more than enough to plant them in a large space this year! Last year they grew beautifully in somewhat spent soil during an insanely wet and muddy spring (raised bed). This year they are growing just as well (normal rainfall this year). They are so easy to grow, and so much fun to harvest. I highly recommend these to anyone who likes cowpeas or who just wants to grow something that's fun, easy and productive!

South Texas, I did have to water them since we went through another short drought. But, they grew out well, I didn't lose any plants and they taste so good.

Just finished shelling my seed peas for next year. One pack of seed produced 2 lbs. of seed and one meal. Red clay and a hot dry summer and these champs produced very well !! Would like to share the taste with you but my lovely bride burned the pot !!

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? susceptible to pests

Review:

This cowpea didn't take off well in our area. The plants grew well, but the fruit was slow to mature. The pods that did mature were quickly eaten by pests. I didn't get enough to eat this year, only to try again next year.
