Black Peas – Heirloom?

Q: I have recently been entrusted with a seed stock of black peas. It is said they were handed down thru 4 generations of Cherokee Indians here in middle Georgia. Could you verify what I have here? I’m wondering if I have a very rare seed. Jason Smith

A: Black peas are uncommon but not exactly rare. If you are convinced yours are unlike any others, contact the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange for their advice.
