    an older lady in our community gave me some field peas for my garden. She didn't know the name of them but said she had grown them for years and saved her seeds. The plant looks like a black eye pea plant but the peas are mostly solid black with an occasional one that is black with a cream colored splotch on it. Anyone got any idea what they are called. thanks

    Could they be pigeon peas?
