Review:

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.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
