Which Name? Black-eyed Peas, Cowpeas, Field Peas, or Crowder Peas?

Beans, peas, lentils, soybeans, and peanuts. These are all members of the legume family. Growing legumes in your garden is a great way to provide high-quality protein for you and your family. Black-eyed peas have a different name in each section of the country. Black-eyed peas, also known as cowpeas, field peas, and crowder peas, are a common legume cultivated around the globe.

Several varieties have historically been cultivated in Africa and were transported to the Americas via the transatlantic slave trade, hence a new term is becoming popular, African Peas. By whatever name you call them, they’re an old favorite in the South and can be grown where both days and nights are warm for a period of 60-90 days. Check out our varieties of beans and peas.
