CATJANG COWPEA

#1175 | VIGNA UNGUICULATA

Summary

Catjang cowpeas are a small seeded pea that produces an incredible amount of lush growth that deer, both whitetail and mule, as well as turkey and a variety of other wildlife eagerly seek out. The seed pods hold the seed longer than many varieties of cowpeas making them ideal for ground feeding birds such as Turkey, Quail, and Pheasant. Catjang cowpeas are drought hardy, heat tolerant, and are adapted to a wide variety of soils making them an excellent choice for your wildlife food plots throughout Oklahoma and the Southern U.S. Catjangs, also known as Black Japs or Black Autry Cowpeas, are very viney cowpeas that typically mature in about 100 days. Whether planted alone or mixed with other warm season species, Catjang cowpeas add a tremendous draw to your food plots. They can withstand fairly heavy pressure from grazing wildlife while producing valuable forage both while in the vegetative state, and later as they begin to produce grain.
