Asian Winged Bean (Psophocarpus Tetragonolobus) 10 Organic Heirloom Seeds in a Glass Vial with Silica Beads & Cotton For Long Term Storage
Asian Winged Bean is nutrient-rich and all parts of the plant are edible. One cooked pod with its beans at dinner contains the equivalent protein of a steak. Leaves can be eaten like spinach, flowers can be used in salads, tubers can be eaten raw or cooked, and seeds can be used in similar ways as the soybean. The winged bean is an underutilized species but has the potential to become a major multi-use food crop in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Plant seeds ½ in below the surface. Keep warm and semi-moist for the first few weeks. Plants are slow to germinate, usually up within a week or more. No need to fertilize as these plants make their own food! Grow on a fence in a sunny location and be prepared to wait almost a year before your first bean. Our seeds come from vines that produced their first flowers/beans at about 9 months old.
When you buy seeds from Palm Beach Medicinal Herbs, you are buying seeds that are fully prepared to stand the test of time. Not only do we grow every variety of seed that we offer, we also know exactly what it takes to make a seed last longer than just one season. With proper moisture and temperature control, our seeds will remain viable with germination rates of 80% and better for many years to come. The secret is how we pack each vial of seed. Within minutes of receiving your order, we locate the varieties of your choice from our thermostatically controlled deep freezer where all of our seed is kept frozen at 0°F until you place your order. Next, we fill each glass vial first with moisture absorbing silica beads, then organic cotton, then your seeds, and lastly more cotton for a dry and cozy environment. We ship your glass vials in special packaging to protect your precious investment. Seeds saved with a moisture content of less than 10% and kept in air tight glass vials under frozen conditions are the best saved seeds in the world. Use some seed this year and place the vial with the rest in the freezer for next season.
