Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could identify this bean?

Thumb of 2018-04-03/SpamAllan/02bc23

I planted them up a while ago but cant remember where they are from! If it helps I did pick a couple of beans I found in France that were growing overhead and dangling down nicely.

Thanks,
Sam

Bad news, its not a bean. I suspect you picked a seed pod off a tree.

Ah that makes sense. I didnt think it looked like any bean plant I'd ever seen!

That makes me think it was the one I picked in France. I'm fairly sure it was climbing along someone's pergola/veranda/trellis.

Could it be some sort of climbing plant or definitely a tree?

I wonder if it might be Wisteria of some sort?

I have googled what wisteria seed pods look like and think you may be right! I always knew the flowers on wisteria were beautiful but the seed pods ain't bad either!

Thanks again guys.

Wisterias (Wisteria) do have beautiful blooms with interesting seed pods. We have many photos here in our database for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/brow... here are a couple:

Thanks for your help. I have just read it can take 20 years for one grown from seed to flower so I might be in it for the long haul!
