We at last have the hard-to-find, white-seeded Whippoorwill. Plants produce loads of these creamy-white peas that are great when picked young and stir-fried or harvested when dry for soup. An old Southern heirloom.

Review:

Wow! Best cowpea I've ever grown! 2 packets produced over a gallon of dried peas for seed, plus numerous meals and they're still going! Long pods are better for green snaps than Stickless Wonder. These peas she'll easily and have incredible flavor boiled! Dried peas are some of the prettiest I've ever shelled, as wevill and worm damage is almost nonexistent. No brown spots here! Did I mention drought resistance? Mine and surrounding counties are in an extreme drought "designated disaster area" this year and these peas just keep going with only 2 light waterings so far. Simply amazing cowpeas that will be my main crop cowpea from now on! If you can only grow one cowpea, this is the one! A must try, especially for organic growers!

Review:

I planted these on June 19, 2016 at the same time I planted three other kinds and thy have all been grave yard dead for a while except the white whipperwills, it's now Oct. and the white whipperwills are still going strong.They have faced very little rain,bugs and nematodes.Seems nothing can stop them.Think what they would do under better conditions.

Review:

I planted these first week in June 2015. I was planting 434' rows I had planted 3 rows of yelloweyes and was planting one row of these when it came a 2 or 3 inch rain started just as I finished the row.When I got back I was going to plant a row of purple hull big boys the rain had washed out all tracks,I got confused and planted them in the same row with the white whippoorwills.The whippoorwills choked out 95% or more of the big boys.I had 7 kinds and the whippoorwills were the tallest greenest,It's 9-1 and they are still making peas.I really like the taste

Review:

My grandmother grew these when I was growing up. I now grow them in my garden each year. These are hands down the sweetest, creamiest crowders I've ever grown. They are super producers. Last summer was hot and rainy. This summer was cool and dry. Doesn't matter, they just keep coming. I just leave the pods on the plant to dry and shell them to eat throughout the winter. My gardening neighbors are now hooked on them too. For flavor, productivity and ease of growth you really can't go wrong.
