description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Gray Speckled Palapye'"

Ideal for northern climates, is this flavorful cowpea. As an early variety, this vine pea can be started outdoors once the threat of frost has passed. Producing tasty gray speckled peas, both its growth habit and yield are enhanced in less hot and humid zones. Enjoy fresh or dried. Maturity in 60-70 days. Edited by S. Derr
