Looking for a particular Southern shell pea
So glad to find this forum! I'm planning my first backyard vegetable garden for next spring and summer, and I'd really like to grow a pea that I grew up eating in middle GA but now cannot find anywhere. My grandfather grew what we called "little white peas." The name we gave them is misleading because they weren't white, they were light green both before and after cooking. They are not the tan-colored white acre peas, but are actually smaller and greener. They are not the purple hull ones either. I found a picture at the website linked below which looks very much like what I remember. This grower calls them conk peas - a name I've never heard, and says they are also called "green acre peas" or "cream peas." Does anyone here know how I can get my hands on some, and is "conk" the right name of the pea I'm thinking of? Thanks for any help!
