**Cowpeas, Southern Peas, are the most productive and heat tolerant legumes around. Cowpeas come in bush, vine, tall and short varieties. Great for stopping soil erosion and weed suppression. Cowpeas make an excellent Nitrogen source ahead of fall-planted crops and attract many beneficial insects. Cowpeas grow well on poor land and add lots of organic matter to the soil. Also, they make a good animal fodder crop.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms.

However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
