legume family Tetragonolobus purpureus

Asparagus-pea asparagus-pea, winged pea

An almost forgotten vegetable, which hopefully will have its renaissance! The ground covering plants spread over the full bed and the deep red papilionaceous flowers radiate out of the lush green leafage. Harvest the square-winged legumes at a young age (about 3cm long). Preparation like snow peas/sugar peas. A delicacy for the eye and the palate.

Plant in April in rows with a distance of 50cm. The space in between can initially be used to cultivate radish or lettuce. Continuously harvest the young husks until autumn.
