Winged Bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus)
This listing is for Winged Bean (Winged Bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus)SEEDS, grown in our Haiku Maui garden. Each packet contains TEN (10) Winged Bean seeds. We ship these seeds to you DRIED.
Like with all climbing beans, please give some type of support or trellis for this fast growing plant to grow on. We are going to do our next planting of these vines next to one of our Banana tree patches to allow the beans to climb up and be somewhat shaded at the same time. Read that tip on the Internet, cannot remember where though.
Full sun is too much for a lot of plants/vegetables here in Summer so this 'tip' sounds like a good way to provide support and shade at the same time.
WIKIPEDIA HAS THIS TO SAY ABOUT THIS VERY EASY AND FAST GROWING VINE:
