We at last have the hard-to-find, white-seeded Whippoorwill. Plants produce loads of these creamy-white peas that are great when picked young and stir-fried or harvested when dry for soup. An old Southern heirloom.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great yield

What are the cons? none

Review:

This cowpea did great in our garden. All of the seeds planted came up. Although we ignored them most of the season, they just kept growing. They had the second highest yield of the 10 types we planted (hogbrains was first, but not by much). They were wonderful when cooked. I am so pleased with this little cowpea and will definitely be growing it again next year!

What are the pros? Vining plants

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I'm growing these for the first time this year. When I read the reviews, I couldn't figure out if they were vining or bush cowpeas. They are definitely vining cowpeas that started to develop runners soon after they were well established. Even though my teepee supports fell over, I've kept them watered and continue to get pods filled with wonderful small to medium sized off-white cowpeas with a brown eye. I've been letting most of the pods dry on the vines before I harvest and shell them. I'll be saving seed and vacuum sealing the rest in jars to use during the winter. Even with the supports on the ground, it's still pumping out peas. Will definitely grow again, even though I haven't tasted them yet.

Review:

Wow! Best cowpea I've ever grown! 2 packets produced over a gallon of dried peas for seed, plus numerous meals and they're still going! Long pods are better for green snaps than Stickless Wonder. These peas she'll easily and have incredible flavor boiled! Dried peas are some of the prettiest I've ever shelled, as wevill and worm damage is almost nonexistent. No brown spots here! Did I mention drought resistance? Mine and surrounding counties are in an extreme drought "designated disaster area" this year and these peas just keep going with only 2 light waterings so far. Simply amazing cowpeas that will be my main crop cowpea from now on! If you can only grow one cowpea, this is the one! A must try, especially for organic growers!

Review:

I planted these on June 19, 2016 at the same time I planted three other kinds and thy have all been grave yard dead for a while except the white whipperwills, it's now Oct. and the white whipperwills are still going strong.They have faced very little rain,bugs and nematodes.Seems nothing can stop them.Think what they would do under better conditions.
