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.
