Plant your cowpeas outdoors directly in the
garden after your last frost date. Germination is improved when soil
temperature is above 65 F. Cowpeas require a long growing season with 4 months
of warm days. They are drought resistant and basically can grow anywhere corn
can grow. Plants
can grow 8 to 36" tall.
Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil
or you may experience poor germination!
Requires rich fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Beans do not like soil that is too moist. Water during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.
Cowpeas can be harvested at any time, but are most often used as a green
mature bean. Also grown and used as a dried bean. Frequent harvesting also encourages plant
to produce more pods.

I have raised these peas in the past and they fill out the pod with a large pea; they have a great taste; easy to shell and great yield

These cowpeas are so worth the effort. There are 10 to as many as 15 peas in one pod. They are easy to pick and easy to cook. They taste great, cant believe more people don't plant them!!!

Been growing peas for 60 years but never grew a better pea than this. In every way it is first class. Wife made some sandwich spread with them and it was great also. Reminds me of the old cream crowder from my youth.
