Blackeye Cowpea plants produce pods that grow up to 8 inches long with seeds that can be used either dry or fresh. This plant is semi-vining and grows vigorously to produce heavy yields of delicious cowpeas. Also known as Southern peas. Cowpeas can be planted like bush beans, and they are not susceptible to most bean and pea diseases.
Beans are a popular plant for home gardeners, and it’s easy to see why—they aren’t difficult to grow and they produce large harvests. Bush and pole bean varieties differ in the amount of room needed in the garden. Pole beans can climb upwards to save space when grown up a trellis or other support, while bush beans take up a bit more space in rows on the ground.
