Asparagus Pea tetragonolobus purpureus


Asparagus Pea tetragonolobus is not related to either asparagus or peas. But it has a common name dating back to 1734 when a garden writer by the name of Phillip Miller mentions it in one of his articles. This charming little vine produces dark red blooms which are followed by edible winged pods. Best eaten small (under one inch), they are excellent steamed or added to other vegetables. Sauté whole in butter and they taste very much like asparagus. Thrives in poor soil and full sun. Pkt. 15
