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.

True southern peas
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

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!

My favorite Southern Pea
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Prolific, Wonderful taste!

What are the cons? Twining vines

Review:

I love all Southern "peas" but without a doubt these are my favorites in taste and texture. They like good warm weather - don't even put them in the ground until your daytime temps are getting close to 70 degrees and they will come on very strong and keep producing until frost as long as you keep them picked. The first year I grew them I put them in too early and they rotted in the ground. Since then, I wait until about the same time as when I plant melons and put them in with very good success. We trellis them to keep them up off the ground and they twine around the trellises like crazy. We have to cut them off at the end of the season.

What are the pros? haven't fully grown yet

What are the cons? seeds rot easily

Review:

The package states that these will rot if grown in wet, cold soil. I had mine in plastic bins inside (at least 70 degrees) to start out. I did have a lot of trouble with them rotting. Within a week they'll be gone if not careful. I recommend putting in moist soil outside if it's warm but I don't recommend soaking the seeds first.
