Tiny cream-colored peas; dwarf plants give very early yields. A drought-tolerant variety that is good for small gardens. A rare heirloom from the Perugia area of Italy, collected by our Italian friend Angelo Barbetti.

What are the pros? Unique sustainable crop

What are the cons? You'll want more

Review:

This is a great little cow pea. It's just a little bigger than Israeli cous cous, which makes it interesting to serve. Although it's extremely prolific in a small area, the relatively small size of the cow peas left me wanting more plants. They cook up beautifully, the small size makes soaking and cooking a breeze. I planted the seeds in a tight block, about 12 square feet, more densely than recommended. It's important to keep the seeds moist during germination. The bushy plants quickly shaded the soil, and weeds did not have a chance. Some of them climbed up the neighboring corn, in addition to provided supports. Plants continue to bloom and produce after harvest begins. I let the pods dry on plant, and they shelled very quickly. We've had a very dry summer, and the plants have proven robust and productive despite the heat and drought. It's reliable and sustainable. I'm certainly going to reserve some of the peas and plant this crop again.

What are the pros? Ridiculously easy to grow

What are the cons? Needed a little support

Review:

I have not succeeded with beans or field peas before but decided to try some at the end of Summer. These came up fast and gave me lots of beans. They are very small but easy to pod. I froze half fresh, and half dried. Only disappointment is they started vining and flopping over - had I known, I'd have given a little support.
