Cowpeas, or Vigna unguiculata subspecies unguiculata, are legumes that thrive in warm climates and light, fertile soil. They are also known as southern peas and black-eyed peas. Although they are suitable for growing in containers, plants cultivated in that manner provide lower yields than usual. The average number of ground-grown cowpea plants per person is 30. You can use nearly any type of container, but each one needs to be at least 12 inches deep to hold the roots and stakes of the plants. When given the right care, container-grown cowpeas can be harvested 60 to 90 days after the seeds are sown.
