Growing winged beans (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus), also known as dragon beans, can be a rewarding experience. These beans are known for their unique winged pods and high nutritional value. Here’s a beginner-friendly guide on how to grow winged beans from seeds:
Winged Bean Seeds:
Purchase high-quality winged bean seeds from a reliable source.
Garden Bed or Containers:
Choose a sunny location in your garden or use containers if space is limited.
Winged beans prefer well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Amend the soil with compost if needed.
Since winged beans are climbing plants, provide support structures such as trellises or stakes.
Watering Can or Hose:
Ensure a consistent water supply for optimal growth.
Mulch can help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
