(Vigna unguiculata) - Also called black-eyed Pea, this warm-region bean is a favorite of many and related to the asparagus Bean, but is grown for its seed rather than its pod. They are round, off-white beans marked with black. This bean grows best in Zones 7 or warmer.
Planting & Growing Guidelines: Sow seed after any danger of frost has passed, and when the soil has warmed to at least 60?? F (16?? C). Plant 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep and 3 inches (7.5) apart in single or double rows. Cultivate shallowly until the plants are large enough to shade out weeds. Mulch between rows to help prevent pods from rotting if they touch they ground. Moisture is critical when the plants are in flower. When pods begin to mature, withhold water to help with drying.
