Urizun Japanese Winged Bean

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.

Last year i grow the old kind of wing bean , had small and late harvest . Exited to try a new variety that’s day neutral, but it’s so slow to start, I accidentally killed first batch of sprouts, started again in early July, now it’s October , I have vines about 4feet tall, no flowers no pods

What are the pros? Delicious, Beautiful

What are the cons? Slow to start

Review:

These beans were a delightful addition to my garden this year. The flowers are beautiful and the beans delicious. I had never tried winged beans before, so didn't know quite what to expect. Their flavor is milder than typical green beans, but they have a great crunchy texture. We cut them into small pieces and stir fry them with garlic and a few cherry or currant tomatoes, so yummy. They were slower to start than our other beans, but they're still producing now in September while the other beans are done for the season. A keeper for sure, I hope Baker Creek offers them again.

What are the pros? never produced for me to like

What are the cons? super slow to grow

Review:

These took a super long time to germinate. What few germinated grew very slow and always looked sick. They never produced. I planted them in a row next to the purple, green, and yellow green beans which did fabulously. Super bummed because I wanted to try this new variety.
