Description
Lady
Southern Pea (Cowpea)


90 days — Also known as 'Lady Finger', 'Rice', 'Lady Edible' and 'Lady Rice', 'Lady' is a heat tolerant, cream-type Southern pea with semi-erect plants and white flowers. The peas are very tasty, very small, and cream colored with a darker 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.

One of the first commercially available varieties, 'Lady' is an old heirloom that dates back to the early 1800s. Over the years, 'Lady' has been sold by most Southern seed companies, often under varying names, some of which are mentioned above.[1] Because of their small seed size, there are a lot of seeds (up to about 350 seeds per ounce), one packet goes a long way.
