Positive Farmerdill On Jan 19, 2013, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

68 days. Compact plants. [Developed by the Virginia/AES.] 'Queen Anne' is a very dependable and heavy producer. Yields 8 to 12 seeds per 7 to 9" pod. Plants are compact, 26 " tall with no runners. Flavor is a little better than the Calfifornia blackeyes. Small seeds that have the appearance of a half size Blackeye. Only drawback is the small size.
