Got a weird question that even Google won't seem to answer. I planted some crowder peas right next to purple-hull peas. If I save seed, from each will I get crowders and purple-hulls next year, or will I get some sort of a hybrid?

Second, I sure got worn out shelling peas this year. Has anybody tried any of the mechanical pea shellers and have any suggestions on those for next year?

Thanks,

Neil
