Whippoorwill Cowpea

This variety was for decades the standard Southern pea, and was grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. 7-8 inch green pods tinged with purple, contain many small, light brown peas with darker brown speckles. Great shelled or dried. Drought tolerant even for a cowpea; sends runners as much as 5 feet on fertile soil, more of a bush type when grown under dry land conditions. Productive and flavorsome!

Review:

Grew these in Louisiana where our Pinkeyes always seem to get spoiled by aphids and mold. Now live in Arkansas where that hasn't seemed to be a problem.... until 2014 (a very cool, wet summer). A few of my purple hull plants came under aphid attack and a small percentage of the pods molded before mature. Luckily I planted some whippoorwills as well which where TOTALLY unaffected by either. Some plants produce large pods, large peas. other produce small pods and small peas. Only save/plant the large seeds and I think you can avoid this, that's my experiment for next year.
