Vigna unguiculata unguiculata

Actually a cowpea, these familiar cream-colored beans with a small black eye thrive in hot climates. The plants have a bush habit and yield an early crop of beans that can be eaten fresh, pickled as dilly beans or dried. In the South, black-eyed peas are traditionally eaten for good luck at the New Year.
