Bush Sitao BS3 Cowpea
(Vigna unguiculata); Bush habit; Dual use: snap and dry; Minimum 20 seeds
Large meaty pods on Bush Sitao BS3's sprawling bushes are excellent as snap beans at the 60 day mark. Allowed to dry on the plant (~85 days), pods shell to reveal large deliciously sweet cowpeas. A productive "must grow" variety for us due to its versatility. "Sitao" is Filipino for "long bean."
