Bean Bush Cowpea California Blackeye #5 25 grams (~100 seeds)

Despite being called a black-eyed pea, cowpea, or southern pea, these are actually beans. Cowpeas produce in higher heat, humidity, and drier conditions than other beans. Plants are bushy and occasionally semi-vining, producing 6"–8" pods produced at the top (crown) of the plant. Disease resistant.
