(Lablab; Dolichos lablab) Most of this legume vine from India is edible: the pods, leaves, flowers, dried seeds, sprouted seeds and roots are all commonly eaten in India. Not only is it versatile in the kitchen, but its purple-veined leaves add ornamental interest in the garden. In traditional Chinese medicine it is used as a tonic and for the treatment of dysentery, bloody stools and ‘summer heat disorders’. Tall twining vine matures in about 75 days.
