cow peas

michael2522March 22, 2013

I want to plant cow peas as a cover crop. Can I just buy a bag of black eye peas at the grocery store or are those seeds treated?

They will do fine. Of course if youwant them only as a cover crop, I would suggest the little brown peas marketed as field peas.

"Can I just buy a bag of black eye peas at the grocery store..."

That's what I would do unless I had a feed and seed store nearby where I could buy the seed in bulk inexpensively.
