In this area, purplehull pea seed is a common item at almost any farm supply and seed store. But we realize not everyone is so fortunate to live in an area where pea seed is in such abundant supply.
A search of the Internet has yielded a number of online sources of purplehull pea seed. (By the way, look in most seed catalogs, and "purplehull" is spelled as two words, "purple hull." Some folks just don't know how to spell.)
you're interesting in growing some of these wonderful peas yourself, you
can go to the Web sites of the seed companies listed below and do a search for "purplehull" or
"purple hull" or "pinkeye" (purplehull peas are
often referred to as "pinkeye purplehull peas" because many -
but certainly not all - have pink eyes). The most
common variety grown in the Emerson area is probably the Pinkeye Purplehull BVR (Bacteria Virus Resistant), which is one of the varieties sold by
whose Web site is the first of those listed below. If there is
menu of vegetables to search, look for a listing of "southern peas," as
purplehulls are a member of the southern pea family. Another
common name for southern peas is "cow peas" or "cowpeas."
Thanks, and our best wishes to you for a wonderful crop!
