(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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Beautiful color

What are the cons? None

Review:

Beautiful pods, flowers and plant. Grow quickly and climb everything. I don’t grow them for pods as they’re so pretty I don’t want to pick them. Nice purple flowers and stalk. Grew these in a pot with tomato cage and boy they climbed. Amazing addition to any garden.

What are the pros? Unique

What are the cons? Too tall

Review:

I grew these for ornamental purposes only, on the advice of a friend who said they looked so fabulous. They germinated well and quickly. They didn't start to bloom until mid-July, and by then they were already 15 feet tall. The blooms last only a day or two and then the pods start coming. But they were so high up, they weren't much to behold. The plants covered an old antenna tower on the west side of the house and exceeded 30 feet by frost. We thought perhaps the winter ice and winds would help knock down what I couldn't remove by hand, but the raggedly remnants are still there. So--I might recommend them in an area farther from your house. And keep them in check!

What are the pros? Color, toughness,easy

What are the cons? possible poison

Review:

I LOVE these beans! My children love eating the pods fresh. They are tough, surviving full NM sun, temps above 100F and drought, even in a container. They are stunningly beautiful plants, flowers, and pods. In my yard they grew to about 2-3 feet tall and produced 6-10 pods per plant.

What are the pros? most prolific, best dry

What are the cons? none

Review:

yes lablab! this is the best bean for a wet environment! i live in pahoa and we got 254 inches of rain in 2018! this vine is over 3 years old and lived through the eruption and still produced a nice crop, as well as a nice crop as dry beans for storage! i even cut the vine back and its resprouting!! this vine is great as a ground cover because the flower stocks go upright showing the blossoms 2-3 feet off the ground and easily accessible in the air to grab the beans once they have developed. lablab is only poisonous at its mature stage, but once cooked it becomes edible. but did you know the tuber, tender shoots, leaves, and flowers are all edible as well? great nitrogen fixer too! check out my blog for a few more details! and a write up on drying lablab for seed and dry bean! its an amazing plant. oh ya its so beautiful as well! https://tropicalselfsufficiency.wordpress.com/2017/04/20/lablab-lablab-purpureus/ https://tropicalselfsufficiency.wordpress.com/2019/01/23/bean-processing/

What are the pros? Easy grower Beautiful Fragrant

What are the cons? Vine needs to be kept in check

Review:

One of 6 recommended green manure crops from Hilo Edu. Has surpassed our expectations! Defiantly poisonous if not cooked right (so are Potatoes, Cassava, Taro, and many foods we eat). Key to it's edibility is cooking pods when young (before you feel the beans develop) 20-ish min. to our liking. Mature beans should never be eaten raw! Beans cook best when picked while the beans iside are still green or shiny. If dried then the beans should be soaked overnight. Once you have the beans picked and peeled (soaked if dried), the bean must be boiled for at least 45min. then water should be drained, rinsed, re-boiled in new water for an additional 45 min. , drained, and rinsed (boiled water makes for great compost feeder. Once boiled it can be eaten as is, though I find the flavor is abit bland, but we've had AMAZING luck with turning this product into a Tempeh, and no need to dehaul the bean! This is how we read most people prefer it in India to east China! AMAZING, but work :)
