This pea was a staple of the Southern armies during the American Civil War. We were excited to be able to find this living treasure of the 1860s. Tasty peas are the earthy color of clay. Rare!

Review:

I can't compare this cowpea to any other variety as I've never grown any before these but compared to what comes out of a can these are far far far better. I grew a small patch of these Clay Cowpeas in 2018 and stored them in a bowl until tonight Dec 31, 2018. I cooked a small batch in a number five iron skillet for New Year 2019 and had I known they'd of been so good I'd of never waited till now, I would of ate 'em right after harvest. They were simple to grow, only watered a few times, (water the soil not the plants as they prefer not getting the leaves wet). They were crowded in the bed I made but didn't seem to be any problem and I didn't have to do anything with them until the pods dried on the plant when I picked, shelled and stored them. The peas appeared really small in the dry stage but they plumped up good when cooked. i am very pleased with the Clay Cowpea and I can't wait till spring to get to planting more. My thanks to Baker Creek for their vast selection of seeds.

Review:

This was not the highest yielding cowpea we grew, but the flavor was wonderful. All the seeds came up, and grew well. We ignored them for most of the season, but it did not seem to harm them, they just kept growing. Harvesting the peas was easier than beans, and yield was just in the good range. But the taste will keep me growing them every year!

Review:

I planted only three seeds to see how they would grow because summer over here is very hot and we grow our vegies during our winter dry period in May, June. July. But we have had the wettest summer on record for January, 2017 and the seed had really taken off and flowered and produced heaps of beans. We have only had Mung Beans (cowpeas) available over here which we use as sprouts, so I thought I would try something different. I'm very glad I did. I Have to now try your recommended recipes and cook them like baked beans and test their taste.
