Good old favorite of many gardeners, the lovely black eyed pea. This pea plant will produce pods that are 7-8 inches long with large, smooth, delicious seeds, fresh or dried. It is also a heavy yield-er with very vigorous vines. Great to add to any garden!

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.
