description for "Cowpeas: Vigna sinensis 'Turkey Craw'"

Clay or sandy soils won't deter this annual cowpea. This easy to grow legume can thrive in some of the worst soil types. Planted mainly for deer and turkey, in warmer zones, it can germinate in about a week. Whether broadcasted or in rows, it can grow from mid Spring to Fall. Edited by S. Derr
