In field tests, cowpeas are found to be the fastest at accumulating biomass and fixing nitrogen (via soil associations with rhizobium bacteria). On top of that, the seeds are very low in phytic acid and the leaves have no phytic acids. This uniquely makes the greens more nutritious as phytic acids act as nutrient absorption blockers. Many folks know these prolific and beautiful plants for the famous culinary all-star the black-eyed pea, but there are so many other amazing seeds in the world of cowpeas! Here's but a sampling!

Mix Contains: Iron, Clay, Hogs Brains, & Old timer or Purple Podded (bush).
