Winged Bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus)

(Also known as Asparagus Pea, Goa Bean, Four-Angled Bean, Manila Bean, and Kok-tau)

The historical origin of this Pea family member is uncertain. Many authors place the origin in the Papau New Guinea and Indonesian island regions where many genetic strains of winged bean exist. It is intensively cultivated in Burma and India, and it has been successfully introduced into other southeast Asian regions, West Africa, and the West Indies.

Winged bean sprouts and shoots may be eaten raw or cooked as green vegetables. The first green pods often are ready for consumption 6 to 10 weeks after sowing.
