Black Crowder

70 days — The plant habit of 'Black Crowder' Southern peas is a high bushy type of growth with purple flowers and pods that set above the foliage. The plants are very productive yielding pods that reach about six inches long.

The peas themselves have a deep purple color when first shelled which then turn black when dried. The green pods are easy to shell.

Originally introduced in 1907. Each ounce contains approximately 150 seeds.

A True Wonder
We have grown these peas for years and they have never let us down. They produce a large size pea and average about sixteen peas per pod. They can handle the heat of Florida summers well and make a great summer cover crop for hot climate zones. If you don't use a trellis make sure you leave plenty of room between your rows. They are great for canning either fresh or dried.

Hard to kill
these things have thrived in an early 100+ degree heat wave , couple weeks worth of no rain and poor watering on an emergency absence. Not to mention a rookie gardener . Almost fool Proof
