description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Penny Rile'"

Heavy yields and medium sized peas characterize this cowpea. This new variety, features khaki colored peas that store well long after harvest. Ideal for soups, it can also be picked fresh and enjoyed as a snap. Its tender leaves are edible and are more flavorful if picked young. Maturity in 80 days. Edited by S. Derr
