(Vigna unguiculata) Dating back to the early 1800s, this heirloom variety of many names ("Rice", "Rice Lady", "Lady Finger") produces huge yields of small cream-colored peas. Semi-erect plants are more compact than most other cowpea varieties making them an excellent choice for small gardens. Can be eaten at the green shell stage (75 days) or left to dry on the plant (90 days). 50 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 2" apart, 1" deep in rows 36" apart. Plants will vine if trellised. Immature seeds can be cooked fresh or pods can be left to dry on the vine.
