(44 varieties to choose from) UPDATED FOR 2021 ( hopefully pictures soon)
Culture is very similar to beans. Plant when the soil is warm. Many view these as a Southern crop. All of these do fine here in Iowa. They are delicious fresh-shelled and cooked. Or you may dry them before shelling and use them as dry beans. They make a rich broth and are an excellent food product. Try some this year. We continued tackling Tom Knoche’s cowpea freezer storage this year and had great success. We had more that we will increase further and will be available for 2022.
