Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - One of the earliest maturing asparagus beans. Like most black-seeded varieties it does well in the North and the South. Since it is day-neutral, in the South it can be planted for early market sales, late for a fall harvest, or year-round in the greenhouse. Green pods up to 23 in. long, but are best picked at 18 in. or smaller (less than pencil-width). A market favorite. Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis
Instructions - Need warm soil to germinate; sow a month after the last frost. Grow in the same manner as pole beans or along a trellis, sow seeds 3/4 in. deep, 4 in. apart, thinning to 8 in. One planting along a tall trellis will produce well all season. Harvest when pods reach 12 to 15 in. before the seeds fill the pods.
Flavor - The flavor is similar to southern peas but with a drier, nutty quality. Sweet and mild, resembling the combined flavor of asparagus, mushrooms, and beans. Braid or tie into knots before cooking. The young leaves and stems are also edible.
