Asparagus Pea

  • Botanical Name: Tetragonolobus purpureus

A fast growing plant that grows like clover and will smother weeds. It produces numerous red Pea-like flowers that are highly decorative. Soon after blooming the flowers produce winged pods that are delicious to eat. Steamed and served with a knob of butter they are said by gourmets to combine the flavour of both Peas and Asparagus. Harvest pods when approximately 3cm long.

Matures 80 days from direct sowing.
