An early maturing and supremely delicious winged bean from Japan. This highly adaptable winged bean variety is not day length sensitive, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of growing areas. Winged beans are native to Equatorial Asia. Baker Creek’s founder, Jere Gettle, first encountered winged beans on a trip to Thailand. Being a tropical crop from the equator, the winged bean typically takes a long season to flower, only setting pods just before frost in our Missouri climate. For years Jere searched for a winged bean variety that will bear pods earlier in order to enjoy a longer harvest season. Urizun is just the variety that Jere had been searching for; this variety is not day length sensitive and will begin to produce pods in August. Heavy production continues until frost. Especially popular on the island of Okinawa, Japan, where this heat loving vegetable takes center stage during the warm summer months. Vines are lush and tropical looking, with large, lavender flowers and unique pods. The vines will readily climb a trellis or fence, making this an exotic edible ornamental. Traditionally blanched and stir fried with ume (pickled Japanese plum), we love to toss them into the wok with just about anything; also great in soups or steamed. Sliced beans resemble little stars; fun way to introduce kids to this nutritious Our Favorite, superb flavor! vegetable.

Review:

We had a very dry spring in the Texas Hill country 2018, yet these vines came on with what little rain we had and produced by late June through til frost. Lagged a little in July-Aug; but 4 seeds netted over 100 pods. Beautiful light blue flowers were a surprise.
