Biwa Sitter Cowpea

(Vigna unquiculata); Heirloom; Bush bean; Dry bean; Minimum 40 seeds

Incredibly productive in our gardens, this bush cowpea is unique in that it's sprawling branches "sit" on the ground instead of climbing. Stewarded for generations by the Kapayou family of Tama County Iowa's Meskwaki Community, the dry beans are a buttery sweet pantry staple typically used in soups.
