Vigna unguiculata
OTHER-COW PEAS also know as Black eyed peas (which have a creamy colour) look more like a bean than a pea, and are believed to originate from West Africa. They come in various colours (and species) of red, black, brown or white and are excellent for fixing nitrogen in your soil, make a great cow fodder (hence the name) and are common ingredients in Indian cooking. A great addition to green manure, they are frost tender annuals suitable for animal fodder, silage, hay or grain as well. Being a fast growing legume they are nutritionally valuable containing many essential minerals and vitamins needed for body health, hair and skin. Such vitamins include A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, and minerals, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, zinc.
Able to reach heights over 60cm they spread easily over the garden. If used as green manure they are best chopped before seeding and flowering and turned into the soil. However they are easy to let go to seed to save for another years crop, and do not multiply like I have found with Wandering Dew.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
