Nothing on Earth Grows in Heaven, Maybe, 2017


The Old World Tropics are home to the nutrient-rich winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus), so called for the wings that run along its length. All the parts of this flying bean are edible, prompting some scientists to dub it "a supermarket on a stem" and “the wonder legume".

Although this humble plant is much under-utilised, it has the potential to become a major multi-use food crop in the tropics. 

The beans used for this work are harvested in Fort Canning Park, Singapore and kindly donated by National Parks Boards (Nparks) .
