Southern Pea (Cowpea) Southern Lady 100 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Lady' is a heat tolerant, cream-type Southern pea. Like many older
heirloom varieties, their growth habit is semi-erect, meaning that their
plants will produce short runners and tend to sprawl plants. That said,
the pods tend to set at foliage level making them easy to pick. Their
white flowers produce short, slightly constricted pods yielding peas
that are sweet, very tasty, very small, and cream colored with a darker
colored eye. 'Lady' peas are sweet tasting and usually ready to eat at
the green shelly stage (about 70 to 75 days), when they can be eaten
fresh, or frozen for later. They also can be left on the vine to dry and
are usually ready at about 90 days. They are a small pea so it takes a
little more work than other varieties, but most people feel that is is
worth the effort. Harvest in 70 days.
