What are the pros? Aphid and mold resistant
What are the cons? none
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.
