Whippoorwill Pea Seed

By segars 1

Question:

I need a source for whippoorwill pea seed.

Segars from Buchanan, Georgia

Answer:

Segars, These old-fashioned cowpeas can be tricky to find, but they are wonderful. Searching for them is well worth the effort! In Georgia, you might try Whippoorwill Hollow Organic Farm for sourcing seeds. They don't officially offer them for sale on their website, but in the past, the owners of the farm, Andy and Hilda Byrd, have donated these seeds to The Southern Seed Legacy project. If they don't have any, they may be a good resource for finding some.

I bought wippoorwill seeds from baker creek farms. They have a website and free catalog and lots and lots of heirloom seeds. The ones I bought were purple hull. The plants were HUGE and I left some pods to dry on the bush and replated them the next year. I live in Ga and shipping was no big deal.

My fathers family raised whippoorwill peas in East Texas. We have seeds that my aunt brought with her when she moved from Tx to Ga. I have 4 rows about to bloom. I'm trying to find more seed myself just in case these don't make enough to eat and save ( I'll be saving everything I have for seed if not).

Just kind of curious about the name whippoorwill pea seed. Do whippoorwills like the pea seed? I love the call of the whippoorwill. I would plant the pea's if I thought they would attract whippoorwills. Regardless, I would like to try them. That's pretty neat.
