The Asparagus Pea is an annual herb native to the Mediterranean region. Also commonly called Winged Bean, Square Podded Pea, or Winged Lotus, Winged Pea blooms with sweet, pea-like, deep-red to crimson flowers that grow in pairs above small trifoliate leaves. Following flower pollination, the Asparagus Pea develops four-winged seedpods that can grow up to 3 1/2 inches by late summer. This plant is called Winged Pea because the seedpods look like they have four wings. Asparagus Pea seeds can grow one of the prettiest vegetables on the face of the earth! The Asparagus Pea is not related to either asparagus or peas. But it has a common name dating back to 1734 when a garden writer named Phillip Miller mentions it in one of his articles. Asparagus Pea goes with virtually any dish. Asparagus peas can also be used in the flower border as attractive ground cover. This charming little vine produces dark red blooms, followed by edible winged pods. The flowers are formed in pairs and can be used as an edible garnish in salads and other dishes. After pollination occurs, winged pods develop can grow up to 3 1/2 inches long. Best eaten small (under one inch), they are excellent steamed or added to other vegetables. Saute whole in butter, and they taste very much like asparagus. Thrives in poor soil and full sun. Germination Time: 10-21 Days
