Yard Long Beans

1 Comment

Yesterday I was greeted by the most delicate, beautiful purple flower on my bean trellis. This variety of bean is called Orient Wonder (Vigna sesquipedalis). As beautiful as this flower is, it doesn’t last long before it gives you two little beans… which grow, and grow and grow… into 18 inch long beans! It is so nice of nature to give me something beautiful and edible at the same time!
