(Vigna unguiculata) Very
easy to grow, colorful, and tasty. Cowpeas are
popular in the Southern US, Africa, and Asia.
They originated in Africa, and tolerate heat,
drought and humidity much better than common
beans do. They are great picked young for use as
green snap beans, and stir-fried or boiled. They
also make a great cover crop, sown in spring
or summer and tilled into the soil when flowers
begin to appear. Plant seeds about an inch deep
after frosts have ceased and soil is warm. Most
types “run,” meaning they grow long vines, and
so 3-5 feet should be allowed between rows.
