[gardeners] Pink peas

I wonder if some of you southerners could answer a question.  (Not that I'm
entirely a yankee; my father is from southwest Virginia and my mother from
east Tennessee.  I was born in Kentucky.)  Anyway, the question.

A former co-worker was from east Texas, and he said everyone there eats
something called "pink peas".  He didn't know a lot about them, though, not
a gardener.  I heard from someone else that they are the same as black-eyed
peas, but picked earlier.  Is that true?  Could I plant a few black-eyed
peas from the grocery store and grow some?
