White Acre
Southern Pea (Cowpea)

70 to 85 days — This old mid-Atlantic heirloom cream pea matures early and produces over a long period of time. It is a great choice for home gardening and for fresh eating. The plants are large and bushy with some runners.

The peas are small, creamy white in color, and excellent tasting. Similar to 'Lady'. Each ounce is approximately 90 seeds.

Incredibly productive and SO tasty!
The 'White Acre' peas have been terrific. I pick them, blanch them and run them through Mr. Pea Sheller, then cook and package them in Zip-lock snack bags in three ounce serving size. I flatten the bags (saves space) and freeze them. We currently have over seventy packs in the freezer now after five pickings. After the last picking, I stripped the plants in the hopes of setting a second crop.

I have now made my first picking off the new second crop, and anticipate at least two more pickings. What a great plant! Incredibly productive and SO tasty!

Harvest Tip: When 'White Acre' peas mature, the pods begin to lose their bright green color. They will fade a bit and then start to pick up traces of yellow and/or red. Watch your peas carefully and pick only the pods that have begun to fade and/or develop red/yellow streaks.

Once you start picking, plan to pick every two to three days. This assures you will get the greatest amount of mature, but not dry, peas for immediate cooking or processing. Since we were in a drought, I would pick one day and water the next. I was amazed at the quantity of peas these plants produced. (I also inoculated the seed to assure good root nodules.)

Anyway, thanks a million!

These are a treat
I see these at the farm stand once in a blue moon but for the most part, if I want them, I have to grow them myself. They are short and compact and easy to grow except for battling the aphids. They are small and shelling can be tedious but they're worth it. Great in a shelled and blanched in a salad of sliced tomatoes, fresh basil and a lemon vinaigrette. We love them.
