Wax Podded Cowpea Project
« on: 2021-04-24, 04:17:36 PM »
Hi all,

Amongst, the seed I planted this year were my nine seeds of the cow pea I call "Coals in the Candle", my wax podded (white to pale yellow podded) BEBS* cowpea.  Besides the above characteristics, it's pods are also very plum and juicy (they actually do look more like wax beans than cowpea pods), so I think it might actually be good as a snap.

 So far the cage has kept the critters away so there is a reasonable change of actually getting a crop this year and having enough to really play with in the future.

*Black Eye, Black Skin (so basically a black black eyed pea)
