These Cowpeas are delicious and high yielding. Southern peas are also called cowpeas, field peas, crowder peas, and black-eyed peas. By whatever name you call them, they're an old favorite in the South and can be grown where both days and nights are warm for a period of 60 to 90 days.

Coronet is an improved Pinkeye Purple Hull type. The plants are upright and compact. At the green shell stage (about 62 days), the peas are green with a light-red colored eye and its pods are purple and average length of about six inches. If allowed to grow to maturity and the seeds harvested dry, they have a maroon colored eye and a smooth seed coat. They can be boiled, frozen, canned, or dried. Green seeds can even be roasted like peanuts.

Coronet was bred at the University of Georgia, Agricultural Experiment Station as a complex, but stabilized cross between Pinkeye Purple Hull and Iron. It reportedly has a tolerance to cowpea strains of southern bean mosaic and cucumber mosaic viruses.
