A preferred variety of many Southerners, it has delicious flavor. Hulls are purple; an old favorite.

What are the pros? Fast germination & growth

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I planted these seeds late and didn't know what to expect since we're already experiencing 90 degree days with torrential downpours. They went into the ground on Sunday. The packet gave a 7-14 day window for germination. By Wednesday, they'd breached the surface of the soil. It's now Friday and they all have leaves and are almost ready to climb the trellis. I'm blown away!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, pest resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these for the first time last year and absolutely love them. A lot of bean varieties can't survive in the Louisiana summer heat, but the Purple-Hull Pinkeyes thrive in it. They were pretty resistant to bugs (I didn't use any pesticides, only an occasional dusting of flour to ward off caterpillars) and basically took care of themselves after the first month or so. The purple hulls make finding the ripe pods easy, and the plants are nice-looking, with creamy-white flowers. I planted them pretty early (around the end of March) but they didn't take off until late May, when the weather warmed up. After that they produced all summer and well into October. They definitely like full sun, but will also grow in partial shade. The peas taste delicious, especially cooked fresh. I'm growing twice as many this year.

What are the pros? Fantastic flavor bumper yealds

What are the cons? Spoils you for other peas

Review:

A truly wonderful flavor and very easy to grow. And something special happens when you grow this pea, many beneficial insects show up just for it. My plants last year were swarming with all kinds of pollinators, as well as insect eaters like Praying Mantis. So not only did I get lots of lovely peas but the rest of my garden did really well just because the plants were there. Sadly, the taste of this pea will spoil you for all others. Just a warning lol.

What are the pros? Great!

What are the cons? Grows taller than I can reach

Review:

Actually reviewing prior to purchase in anticipation of having found my long sought purple hull pea seeds that are the same purchased in bulk several years ago at a small town farmers coop in TN. I also provide tall stakes for them to climb because it hurts my back to leave them on the ground as my husband (who grew up planting large plots of peas in the cotton field corners) advised. My big hint to the other reviewers is to include some mammoth sunflowers in a row or a few at each end of the peas to deter deer. I discovered this by accident. The only year I did not do this the deer stripped all the leaves and I barely had two messes. Can't wait for my seeds to arrive!

What are the pros? tastes heavenly

What are the cons? NOTHING to dislike

Review:

I have not ordered any of these peas yet, but I grew up with them and can tell you all about them. My father used to tell me that he had to plant a half acre lot of these peas just to feed me in addition to the rest of the garden he planted. He actually had 5 mouths to feed.They are heavenly! My husband said that he had to eat pinto beans when he grew up because poor people had to eat what they could grow easily and cheaply. I informed him right away that pinto beans was someone's choice because nothing could possibly be easier or cheaper than growing pinkeye purple peas. All anyone needs is hot weather. That's it! I NEVER remember a crop failure. I also remember them being planted in partial shade for much of the day because there was no better location. It didn't matter as long as it was hot enough in the shade as well.They smell heavenly when cooked. It is probably affecting my health even to this day that I ate so many. Now I am almost 60 years old, and don't have heart disease!
