Productive. Peas are tan to brown mottled with darker brown.
Mayo Speckled Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Southern Pea (Cowpea)

80 days — The plants are vigorous and lush. Pods can be eaten fresh like green beans at about 70 days, shelled closely thereafter, and harvested at the dry stage in 90 to 120 days. The pods contain a dozen or more small, mottled, tan to brown peas. Very prolific.

Although it originally was from the homeland of the Mayo Indians in Mexico (from Southern Sonora to northern Sinaloa at the confluence of the Mayo and Fuerte rivers), it is one of the few cowpeas (Southern peas) that does beautifully on our farm in the Pacific Northwest.  In spite their origin, 'Mayo Speckled' performs perfectly in our climate. Each 0.5 ounce contains approximately 90 seeds.
Fun With Crowder Peas
I have grown these for a few years now, and while our growing season doesn't seem *quite* long enough for them to really be productive (and maybe it would just take planting more and taking up more space to get enough to save and eat?), I think they are a lot of fun to grow. I love the flowers, and the way the way the pods shoot off from their stems!
