I have Groundnuts (Apios americana) for trade. I'm looking for MidAtlantic/North East natives. Thanks. I have some other things too for trade.

I am still at planting out stage. But we should talk over the up coming years.

Have you ever harvested beans from your apios?

I have, they hang on the vines and it's just like any other bean plant. I mostly leave them on the plants for the animals though.

The groundnut yield is supposed to be very high per what you start with. I wonder why it hasn't been utilized commercially as a food group where it grows native.

I think it recovers too slowly.

Could'a fooled me on the yield part.

It is virtually extinct in the wild.
