Dear Patti Moreno,
As a fellow Puerto Rican having grown up in NYC I wonder if you too were brought up eating Arroz con Gandules? I absolutely LOVE it and can probably make that my one and only dish to live on.
I've searched the net and happily found Pigeon Pea seeds and will attempt to grow them this year as any other annual bean (they produce as 3yr perennials in the tropics).
Any chance you ever attempted to grow them yourself? You're in Boston and have a bit longer growing season than I do (I'm in Central VT). Would love to know if you ever tried it or know someone who did.
Gandules is such a staple in Puerto Rican food I had to ask! :-)
Thanks for such a fantastic site. Your offer a wealth of info - thanks so much!
Loida, the Garden Groupie
