Winged Bean Starter Live Plants - 2.5" pot
The winged bean, also known as cigarillas, goa bean, four-angled bean, four-cornered bean, manila bean, princess bean, asparagus bean, dragon bean, is a tropical herbaceous legume plant. Growing winged beans are similar in growth habit as well as appearance to the garden variety pole bean. The plant has a vining habit with 3 to 6 inch, long leaves and producing 6 to 9 inch pods. Four angled “wings” run lengthwise to the pods, hence the name. Seeds of the Asian winged bean look much like soybeans and are round and green.
Plants need a medium to climb over; trellis, A-frame or fence are all popular solutions. Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best when young and tender.
