Pigeon Peas (Congo Bean)

Pigeon Congo Pea Bean Seed


Pigeon Peas are actually a bean and are sometimes known as Congo Beans or Congo Peas. They have been around for thousands of years. They take a bit longer to cook than most beans but it is worth the wait. They have a very distinctive flavor that is somewhat nutty and robust. They are great in soups or salads but can be served alone as well. They are very strong growers and quite prolific. I am a firm believer in diversity when it comes to gardening. That way if you are hit by a new insect or disease the oddball plant might survive. Pigeon Peas would be a great back up planting to a more traditional bean. These should be on everyone’s list.
