description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Bisbee Red'"

Hot desert heat won't deter the productivity of this cowpea. An ideal match for low desert climates, this cowpea produces long green pods with colorful seeds inside. These dark red seeds are characterized by their white eye. Ideal for eating fresh or dried for later use. Maturity in 70-90 days. Edited by S. Derr

History:

Seeds originally collected in Arizona
