Cow Peas

Cowpeas, also known as the southern peas, are highly nutritious, tasty and easily grown. They are eaten both as fresh shelled green peas or as dry peas. There are three basic types: blackeye, crowder, and cream seed types. Each type has a distinct appearance and flavor. 

Cowpeas are very susceptible to cold and should not be planted until the soil temperatures are at least 70�F. There are many varieties that are resistant or tolerant to several diseases and root-knot nematodes. Heavy applications of nitrogen fertilizer should not be used for southern peas. Fertilize

moderately with a low-nitrogen analysis such as 4-12-12.

For the effort necessary to grow them, few if any other vegetables will pay higher dividends than Southern table peas.
