What are the pros? Yield, hardy
What are the cons? Nothing really
A single 25' row (10" spacing) produced 4 cups (about 1.5 pounds) of dry cowpeas over roughly 3 harvests. At about the 2nd harvest plants started vining a bit but they mostly supported themselves when grown in close proximity to each other.
Impressive yield (compared to other cowpeas I grew) and impressive drought tolerance. Their flowers were constantly covered in insects which made them a haven for red wasps, which managed the pests in excellent fashion. Surprisingly (or not?) the red wasps never bothered me as I harvested alongside. Definitely going to grow again.
