(Dolichos lablab) Beautiful purple pods are used in Asia as a curry and stir-fry vegetable. Pick when small and tender, as old pods and dry beans may be poisonous! The long, rambling vine is also very ornamental with lilac-colored blossoms and purple stems. Thomas Jefferson planted this fine bean at Monticello.

Review:

Red stems, deep,green leaves and spikes of gorgeous purple flowers make this a stunning ornamental that I have frown along the railing of my front porch for 3 years now. And then the pods! A brilliant, shiny purple hue, in copious numbers! I don't know if my variety is edible in the pod...they seem tough, but I shell them and cook the green or turning-black beans like edamame in stir fries and soups. Yummy! The seeds are easy to gather, store, and sprout here in humid 7b NC. I get volunteers from fallen seeds too, and dig them up as gifts for friends. A great plant!

Review:

I grew these on a trellis along my sidewalk. EVERYONE wanted to know what they were and cars even stopped in the street to ask about this plant. Beautiful flowers and beans-the purple next to the deep green leaves was stunning. The flavor was good-different than a normal bean. We had 10 neighbors at one time picking and eating! I am going to try the red leaved variety this year and hope for the same reaction!
