The Q&A Archives: Cooking Black eyed peas.

Question: When do I pick black eyed peas for cooking?

Answer: Pat,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

When the pods start to turn from green to yellow but long before they begin to dry. At that stage they are easy to shell and fully plump.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
