    Another new to me veggie :D

    Has anyone grown these? I ordered some from Veseys and am wondering if anyone has growing/harvesting tips for this plant.

    If I'm not mistaken, if you can grow Asparagus peas, the Asian market will snap them up. Might want to check that out, or keep it in mind.
    I remember growing the yard long beans also, which is a vegetable the Asian market wants really bad.

    I grew them once. It' s true they aren't very prolific, however, sauteed in garlic butter, they were OK. Can't say for sure I caught them at the "right time" or not....could be they were well disguised in garlic :D but they were certaily one of the prettier veggies!
