The Green Black-Eyed Pea is a bean that was developed by standard crossing (non-GMO) from a black-eyed pea through University of California at Riverside and University of California at Davis. The black-eyed pea is thought to have originated in West Africa. It was introduced into the Southern United States around the 17th century in Virginia. The majority of these beans are now grown in California. Throughout the South, the black-eyed pea is still a widely used ingredient in soul food and various types of Southern U.S. cuisine. This thin-skinned bean is savory and robust, yet has a subtle earthy sweet flavor and a smooth buttery texture.
It can be used in African and Indian dishes as well as those from Caribbean and the Southern United States

I always make Hoppin John for New Year's day and these green black eyed peas are fresh and tasty. The flavor to me is sweeter and smoother than what I used to buy in the grocery store and I really like them.
taste like fresh

I have never cooked dried beans before that taste like fresh ones.
