96% of 100

70 Days. A delectable, nutty-flavored cowpea is perfectly suited to the screaming hot summer heat in the South. This classic southern cowpea has long been a favorite of our customers for its impressive heat tolerance and wild productivity. The plants grow quickly in the face of intense weather and will produce tons of tasty, tender pods in a lovely green to purple color. These grow much like regular green beans and produce rather quickly.
