Incredibly prolific and tender with a mild flavor. The best cowpea I have ever eaten.
Picked up seed from a few varieties at an Ag Experiment Station near home in the Fall of last year. I'm growing Mississippi PEPH, Brown Crowder, Calico Crowder, Big Boy, Yellow Ripper and Rouge et Noir.
The last one, Rouge et Noir, is a Louisiana heirloom that produces green pods with peas that are red as they mature and turn jet black if allowed to fully mature and dry. The plants I pulled my seed from where massive so I'm hoping it does well here and is as tasty as it's appearance is beautiful.

I have tried Knucklehull before as it was supposed to be nematode resistant but it didn't tickle my fancy like the Rippers.
