I grow pigeon peas mainly because they are used in typical Puertorican cooking. Pigeon peas give more to the soil than they take from it. You can grow other plants under the dappled shade of these trees such as lettuce and beans or cucumbers. They can be trimmed and the trimmings added to the compost to enrich it. The flowers attract pollinators to your garden.

Andrea, that would be good info to add to the actual database entry, using the comments section on the left side. Right now it's just attached to your image and not visible unless someone enlarged it.

I just saw your suggestion. I have not been here for a while. I will try to incorporate this into the database.

@Kevalsha Andrea, I agree that would great information to have in the databse! You can scroll to the bottom of the database page here Pigeon Pea (Cajanus cajan) and below your original comment, click where it says "Propose edits to this comment"; add the additional information and then click on the green bar that says "Save your changes".
