Just my two cents to confuse things: the peas I know as 'black eyed peas' are not the same thing as 'crowder peas.' Crowder peas are similar, but not identical. (I prefer the regular old 'black eyed' version.) Crowder peas are bigger and, uh, more gray/purple than black eyed peas., and they don't have black eyes.
A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money.
Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine,
something Brussels sprouts never do.
