A Louisiana variety that has been in the Pigott family, Washington Parish, since the 1850’s. Prized by the family as the best-tasting cowpea of them all. Brown seed is speckled and of good size.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

I was reading the reviews and saw that people were having issues with running. My father's parents grew these when he was a child and always planted them in the corn field so when I first got them he told me to plant them in the corn. I didn't really want to because as a rule I hate anything growing in the corn. As usual Father knows best, they were great and used the corn stalks to grow up. Don't interfere with the corn production at all and also they are a great pea. We grow them every year. Try em in your corn. We wait until the corn is up and doing well and then go through and plant the peas in the row. Awesome.

What are the pros? healthy climber, vigorous

What are the cons? aphid gourmet plant

Review:

I grew the habricot variety and the pigott variety next to each other in the dirt in my backyard in Oklahoma. The aphids covered this plant with the ants busy harvesting their 'honeydew'. I tried washing them off, and tried organic homemade pesticides. Nothing phased them. So I removed the plants and threw them away. The Habricot doesn't have any aphids.

Review:

I planted these May20th and and they poked through May 22nd. Alas Tx had water restrictions so I never got to judge the taste for myself, but I bet I will this year. Also I called my seed order in and it arrived in five days-great service

Review:

This was my first year to try this pea. We grow several other varietiies, and this one is among the tastiest, most flavorful peas I've ever grown. My daughter doesn't like peas, ordinarily, but she loves this one. It's good. However, I should have read the reviews first -- I was surprised that it was such a forceful runner with vines of 8 ft and still growing! The hulls grow long and full. It's very lush. Luckily, I had placed it beside a fence so I just let the vines take it over. Will grow this one again, for sure!

Review:

I am growing the Pigott Family Heirloom Cowpea for the first time this year. I should have read the reviews more closely about 8' vines! I was not prepared for vines however the plants are beautiful, disease and drought tolerant, make abundant and very delicious peas. It is one of the longest cowpeas I have grown, with plenty of small peas packed inside each pod. I would definitely grow this again and would recommend this variety to other growers in our area.
