    g’day all,

    this bean grew it is not a volunteer i don’t think as there are 4 plants in a single row, so whatever it is we planted it(dunno where eh seeds originated?), we have bush, flat and snake beans.

    i tasted a young one tastes like a been not as juicy but, so maybe better as a dry bean, which is the way it is heading.

    help in identifying will be much appreciated

    Perhaps a borlotti bean? They have red pods. Have a look at them on Green Harvest http://greenharvest.com.au/SeedOrganic/VegetableSeeds/Beans.html and see if it matches.

    not borlotti i would think this is a round normal bean shape with no colour on the seed apart from that black spot where the roots might come from. looks like a black eye chuckle.

    hmmm lavman,

    no chooks or animal feed yet here

    only buy ins so far sugarcane mulch in plastic wrap bale nad mushroom compost from farm.

    the rest came from raking slashed grass near by that is a possibility we have a number of tomato plants pop up where we grow things.

    yep cow peas sounds great would think they and blackeyed peas the same?

    many thanks this group come in again.
