Vigna unguiculata

Cowpeas may reach a canopy height of 30–36 inches in Indiana. However, more determinate types will be around 20–24 inches, and it is likely the indeterminate types will vine at that same height resulting in no further increase of the canopy height. The seed pods are borne above the leaf axil, thus the pods are very visible. The seed pod is typically 3 to 6 inches long and has 6 to 13 seeds per pod. The seed weight per bushel is 60 pounds with about 3000 to 4000 seeds per pound.
