Rice Pea is a Gullah Geechee variety of lady pea used in coastal Carolina Hoppin' John and Reezy Peezy alongside Carolina Gold Rice. These seeds were produced for Ujamaa by the great Amirah Mitchell of Sistah Seeds and Truelove Seeds. She originally got them from Matthew Raiford of Gilliard Farms in Georgia. He likes to use them in hummus, succotash, and blended with other beans: they have a good, fine flavor and aren’t as earthy as other peas. Simply phenomenal harvested when still plump and fresh, but excellent as a dried bean as well.
