The black-eyed pea or black-eyed bean is a legume grown around the world for its medium-sized, edible bean. It is a subspecies of the cowpea, an Old World plant domesticated in Africa, and is sometimes simply called a cowpea.
Black-eyed beans are small, creamy-flavoured beans with a black ‘scar’ where they were joined to the pod. They are much used in American and African cooking, and are the essential ingredient in a traditional southern-style dish known as Hoppin’ John (a mixture of black-eyed beans, bacon and white rice, traditionally eaten on New Year’s Day).
