What are the pros? Easy to grow, adaptable,
What are the cons? none
A Tennessee staple. This is the cowpea my grandparents grew. I've been growing this variety for 20 years. It's the most consistent, dependable pea I've ever grown. I use this pea for eating and as a cover crop. I've grown other varieties, purple hull, red ripper, a black pea from Louisiana, rippers, ect. But this is the pea that always grows. I don't always pick it clean, so the next year it re-seeds and comes back on it's own. It's drought tolerant, heat tolerant better than any other cowpea I've ever grown. The taste is also excellent.

What are the pros? Prolific, flavorful, long-bear
What are the cons? N.A.
We usually plant purple hull peas, but this out-performed our old faithful 15:1! A new pea for Texas heat!

What are the pros? Aphid and mold resistant
Grew these in Louisiana where our Pinkeyes always seem to get spoiled by aphids and mold. Now live in Arkansas where that hasn't seemed to be a problem.... until 2014 (a very cool, wet summer). A few of my purple hull plants came under aphid attack and a small percentage of the pods molded before mature. Luckily I planted some whippoorwills as well which where TOTALLY unaffected by either.
Some plants produce large pods, large peas. other produce small pods and small peas. Only save/plant the large seeds and I think you can avoid this, that's my experiment for next year.
