70 days. The preferred variety of many Southerners; delicious flavor. Hulls are purple; an old favorite.

Review:

As a kid in Arkansas my grandmother used to grow these and they were always a favorite. While I don't remember how hers grew, I sure do recall how they tasted! I am thrilled at how well they produce and look forward to having them in our garden for years to come!

Review:

These are the absolute best for old time Southern peas, we cook up a big pot and serve with cornbread! I am originally from Louisiana and was ecstatic that they would grow and flourish here in Connecticut! Nothing seems to eat them, either, except us, of course! And if you keep them picked they just keep on producing! Was very surprised that even when the nighttime temps dropped into the low 40's they just kept coming. Easy to put up, too, as you just shell them, bag them, and freeze them. No trouble at all. A real comfort food, a taste from childhood, but difficult to find seed, get it while you can!

Review:

I bought a pack of these several years ago (as in probably 2004 or 2005). They were excellent to eat and easy to grow. I let them mature and die when I had picked enough that year. As late as LAST YEAR (2010) I STILL had them naturally regrowing from seed in my garden. Very fertile and if you want to keep seeds to replant, this is your choice.

Review:

As stated old pea that my family grew in Eastern Oklahoma's hot humid summers ... excellent flavor, shells well and does well in my Arizona garden. Good size pea also.. overall it is one of my family's favorites. The only reason to give it a 4 is that I personally prefer pole beans not bush plants.

Review:

I've grown these since gardening with my Grandfather 40 years ago. This is a great variety of shelling pea for hot, humid environments. Always does well in my garden. Very easy to shell after pods turn dark purple. Plants seem to be very disease and pest resistant.
