I love White Whipporwill cowpeas for a good liquor. Note, many people think it is spelled Licker or Likker or Liquer (there is a french word spelled similar) but the correct word is Liquor. Need cornbread.
Iron & Clay are leading the pack here, at present.
Big rains, right after planting, last year, washed out almost all my cowpeas and beans. I had enough I&C seed on hand to replant, along with some dimpled brown Crowder peas. A few Piggott Family Heirloom and Franklin Red survived - enough to save seed to re-plant this year, so I’ll hopefully get to see how they stack up - if the deer don’t eat them before I get a chance. Planted black Cow cowpeas this year, as well, but got a poor stand… probably gonna be saving most of what they make for replanting next year.
iron clay, and red runners. the best. also we got brown peas that are like iron clay but bigger, I don’t know what kind they are, my grandma had them, gave seeds to my aunt and on to me. they’re probably something common that she just really liked. they make a really earthy soupy gravy slow cooked.
