Similar to Texas Cream 40 but the peas are slightly smaller. Medium maturing variety with prolific bushy plants. The leaf is glossy dark green. Pods are medium and straight with slight constrictions set at foliage level and bunched with 13-16 peas. Pods are green at shell maturity and light straw colored when dried. Seeds are NON-CROWDER. They have both smooth and wrinkled seed coats and are cream colored and small. Thrive in hotter, Southern weather!

**Cowpeas, Southern Peas, are the most productive and heat tolerant legumes around. Cowpeas come in bush, vine, tall and short varieties. Great for stopping soil erosion and weed suppression. Cowpeas make an excellent Nitrogen source ahead of fall-planted crops and attract many beneficial insects. Cowpeas grow well on poor land and add lots of organic matter to the soil. Also, they make a good animal fodder crop.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
