Mayo Speckled Cow Peas by South GA Seed Co.

A beautiful southern cow pea with a semi vine habit. Pea pods grow long and contain anywhere from 12 to 16 peas. Pods start off green and turn light yellow as they age. Peas are small and are beige to tan in color with brown specks covering them with a light eye. Hearty little plants. They are quite rare and very little is truly known about them.

How to Save Seeds

 Cross pollination as with other self pollinates is uncommon among cowpeas. However you can space them 50ft apart. Much like English peas or beans collect pods when they are brown and dried out. You also might want to take pods off plants and allow them to cure, by spreading them out indoors or outdoors as long as there is no rain, before shelling to get peas.
