Yellow-Eyed Peas



Yellow-Eyed Peas are like Black-Eyed peas, but have a yellow-coloured oval eye in the middle instead of a black one.

They are popular in the American south. In parts of South Carolina, Hoppin' John is made with yellow-eyed peas rather than black-eyed. Fans of Yellow-Eyed Peas say they have a subtler flavour than black-eyed peas.

Yellow-Eyed Peas seed for home gardeners isn't very easy to come by any more; it is considered more of an heirloom variety.
