description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Running Conch'"

A favorite for centuries, this unique cowpea still enjoys popularity today. Dating back to the 1800's, this high yielding variety produces small cream colored peas with a distinct white eye, outlined in black. Their delicious taste can be enjoyed fresh as a snap or dried for later use. Maturity in 70-90 days. Edited by S. Derr
