Artjac......sadly not a Labrador tree......the way they are producing I could give away a bag full of puppies every other day. I'll be looking at them in a different light from now on tho
Lab labs - Dolichos lab lab or Lab lab purpureus. Climbing bean with purple tinged leaves and slightly scented purple/pink flowers which are attractive to bees and other insects. They produce edible dark purple pods of a similar shape to Mange tout. The seeds are attractive too.....black with a white stripe.
I assume not many people grow them as wherever I've had them over the last 15 years or so, people are very curious about them.
