Mississippi Purple
Southern Pea (Cowpea)

60 days — 'Mississippi Purple' is a brown crowder type cowpea. The plants are semi-vining in growth habit setting pods early and concentrated, slightly above the plant, making the task of picking easier. The lavender colored flowers yield pods are light green in color, maturing to reddish-purple and turn brown when dry. They contain up to fourteen peas per pod and are very easy to shell. The peas are large and green at the "shelly stage."

Bred by Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station and released in 1973. Resistant to multiple diseases including root knot nematodes, bacterial blight and  Fusarium wilt.[1] USDA accession number NSL 92537. Each ounce is approximately 165 seeds.
