How do you know when black-eyed peas are ready to be picked?
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Black-eyed peas are usually ready for picking about 60 to 90 days after planting. Harvest for several days to a few weeks, depending on the variety you have planted. Harvest the black-eyed peas plant before maturity for young, tender snaps. Leaves are also edible at younger stages, prepared in the same way as spinach and other greens.
