description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Monkey Tail'"

Long, hot dry summers only encourage the yields of this unique cowpea. A favorite of the South, its extra long, reddish green pods produce cocoa/tan colored peas. Purported to yield up to 18 peas per pod, this variety can be enjoyed fresh or dried. Maturity in 60-90 days. Edited by S. Derr

History:

Seeds originally collected from Africa
