description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Holstein'"

A very unique and rare variety is this particular cowpea. With its unusual markings, it is part white and part black, just like the cow that shares its name. This small bush plant has high yields and is easy to grow, if seed can be located. Maturity in 70-90 days. Edited by S. Derr
