• Vigna unguiculata Cream Zipper Pea Heirloom

    75 days.

    A Southern favorite! 6-9” pods grow on 2-3 foot bushy plants. A prolific producer. The seeds have a taste much like English peas and cowpeas. Pods form in just 60 days and hang in clusters of 2 or more. As a vegetable they are best when picked before maturity. Pick dry pods for soup and stew beans. Be careful not to pick the bud above the bean when harvesting so more pods will come along

    The plants will produce beans until frost. The crisp, tender pods are eaten both fresh and cooked. They are at their best when young and slender.

    About 120 seeds sow 20 feet of row
