Description:

Black Eyed Peas are believed to have originated in Eastern Asia. They were brought to the Americas by slave traders and have been a popular food in the Southern U.S. for hundreds of years. Black Eyed Peas are related to the Mung Bean and are sometimes referred to as Cow Pea, Field Pea, Tonkin Pea, China Pea, Marble Pea, Brown Eyed Pea, Jerusalem Pea, Black Eyed Suzy and Lobhia. Black Eyed Peas are medium; almost white beans with a 'Black Eye' on the inner curve of the bean. They are about 3/8" long and have a sweet, mild pea-like flavor and firm, smooth texture.
