Kacang Panjang Renek

Today I am super happy that my kacang panjang renek ( short shrub longbean ) is starting to bear fruits.  It is just a foot tall now.  A new friend gave me the seeds and I planted it 2 months ago and now it is starting to bear fruits :)  I did a bit of research on this kacang panjang renek and have it translated here. It is a cross between the creeping longbeans and cowpea. It will starts to flower at 5-6 weeks after germination.  Length of bean is 25-45 cm long with a diameter of 0.6 -0.8cm. Can be harvested 8-10 weeks from the date of germination depending on how healthy the plant is.  Height of plant is around 45 cm to 60 cm. Believed to be originated from the Philippines and brought in to Southern Thailand. And was brought into Kedah State from there. Interesting read up from the internet on this ' short shrub longbean ' literally translated from the malay name Kacang Panjang Renek.  

I am in love with this plant ! Will keep you updated on this longbean plant.
