Hardy Annual- Black Eyed Peas are a favorite in southern vegetable gardens. Black Eyed peas inside a slender pod. The 6" - 10" pods look like a green bean. Inside are tan colored beans. Black Eyed Peas have a black circle on it with a beige spot in the middle of the circle. "Pink Eye" peas have a pink circle in the middle.
