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

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!

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Runner instead of bush.

Review:

These peas are delicious. I will be planting only these purple hulls in the future. The first year I planted them too early and only 2 plants survived. I saved every seed and replanted the next year on June 1 in central Arkansas. They did well and survived the blasting Arkansas heat with no water. I do not water my garden and only the toughest plants survive. These peas produce nice long pods. I harvested one pod that had 21 peas. The plants run more than I like. I wish they were more of a bush type, but I plant them next to a chain link fence and they grow up it. Unfortunately, they are the favorite of the local deer herd. At the end of the season, the deer wipe these out and leave all my other peas alone. Very tasty. Very hardy. Very disease and bug resistant. Very easy to grow. Highly recommended. Google Chef John Folse Louisiana White Or Red Beans With Ham And Sausage. Replace the beans with these purple hull peas and you will have one of the best meals anywhere.

What are the pros? Productive and tough

What are the cons? Shelling, a bit late

Review:

These are an old tradition here in Mississippi. Tough, productive, and of course, tasty! These peas handle drought, rain, heat, bugs, and pretty much everything else the southern summer can throw at them. The cons are that they make long vines that will run on or over their surroundings, and will require shelling, which is very time consuming. But altogether a fun crop!
