What are the pros? Takes some patience.
What are the cons? Need a very sturdy trellis!
Well, I actually almost gave up. The wine grew so long - and never seem to bloom. Then, finally, this autumn (over a year later) the first blooms came! Guess as a result of the days shortening, and the plant finally mature enough this fall. Then came the beans!! Made the wait worth it for sure!
I sliced and saut?ed my first batch in coconut milk and spices, Asian inspired, absolutly delishes with basmati reis! I also often use them in stir-fries. Love them raw and sliced in salads. Tastes somewhat like snap-peas, rather then asparagus. Pick them young and tender and do not over cook the! A light sautee is best!
I live in the caribbean, so the climat is suitable for this wine.The only problem I have experienced are whiteflies. Kept under control with occational "neem-oil/soap spray' treatment.
Will definitely continue growing winged beans!
