‘Royal Blackeye’ southernpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] was released in 1985 by the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station. This southernpea was developed primarily for local fresh market use. The purple hulls and blackeye seed coat pattern combination is unique among released cultivars.
‘Red-N-Sweet’ is a high quality, Vermillion red-fleshed watermelon for local markets and home gardeners. Fruit reaches maturity in about 85 days from seeding. This cultivar has shown good field resistance to fusarium wilt [Fusarium oxysporum sp. niveum (E.F. Sm.) Snyder and Hansen].
