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

My favorite Southern Pea

What are the pros? Prolific, Wonderful taste!

What are the cons? Twining vines

Review:

I love all Southern "peas" but without a doubt these are my favorites in taste and texture. They like good warm weather - don't even put them in the ground until your daytime temps are getting close to 70 degrees and they will come on very strong and keep producing until frost as long as you keep them picked. The first year I grew them I put them in too early and they rotted in the ground. Since then, I wait until about the same time as when I plant melons and put them in with very good success. We trellis them to keep them up off the ground and they twine around the trellises like crazy. We have to cut them off at the end of the season.

What are the pros? haven't fully grown yet

What are the cons? seeds rot easily

Review:

The package states that these will rot if grown in wet, cold soil. I had mine in plastic bins inside (at least 70 degrees) to start out. I did have a lot of trouble with them rotting. Within a week they'll be gone if not careful. I recommend putting in moist soil outside if it's warm but I don't recommend soaking the seeds first.

Review:

First time growing these so I planted a short trial row. Didn't do too much early on, but when the heat came on they took off and grew vigorously. They could use some support since they do put out some runners, but they're doing OK without. They're very easy to pick since the pods are mostly carried above the foliage and the color stands out. Very productive as well. Long pods usually have eight to ten peas, sometimes more. The taste is exceptional. I'll grow LOTS more of these next hear!

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!
