Peas and Beans

Many gardeners are familiar with the common runner bean and garden peas. Yet there are over 20,000 different species of other peas and beans out there that are magnificent, bizarre or just plain unusual. I have traveled the world a lot and taken pictures of indigenous peas and beans wherever i have visited. Here a re some of them.
