Texas Zipper Cream Pea is a southern favorite the tastes like a beautiful blend between a cowpea and English pea. Plants grow to 2-3′ tall and are semi-vining, which provides excellent ground cover for weed suppression during growth. Each plant produces many 6-9″ pods which are medium green in color and will fade slightly as peas mature. Plants will provide several harvests throughout their lifetime. Zipper Cream is very heat-tolerant and performs well when planted in late spring and early fall. Zipper Cream Pea gets it’s name from the ease of shelling and the creamy texture of the finished product. Each pod has a string that acts as a zipper that makes them a very easy variety to shell. The peas are large and creamy white peas that melt in your mouth when cooked. This variety is excellent when prepared fresh, but also preserves extremely well when blanched and frozen. Very productive. 60-65 Days.
