Vegetable Bean for ID : Flower Show,Mumbai : 250912 : AK-3: Known as Papdi or Val Papdi in Marathi, these vegetable pods are very commonly available in the market.
These pictures were taken at the Flower Show at Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai on 19/2/11.
Flat bean pods and white flowers seen on this climber.
A cultivated plant.
Botanical name please.


the botanical name of papdi is Dolichos lablab.


Thanks for the botanical name.
Although a very common vegetable, I was not aware of it.


I tried searching on the net, Dolichos lablab are with purple flowers & purple pods.
Yet to come across this green species with white flowers.


  
Please provide id clues for this climbing herb, growing upon roadside shrubs and trees..
Is this Dolichos sp. ?


Calyx and corolla with its segments form very much like that of Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet, earlier Dolichos lablab L.


Please note, leaves seen in the attached pics are much smaller than Lablab


Dolichos species so far in efi 


These pictures taken minutes ago, tried the angles you have used in your photography. My species is Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet. I think your species is also same. Your specimen may be wildly growing, it may be an escape or a wild variety.

Thanks …, Yes, this was an escape, and I agree with your id conclusion !!

but This bean … the entire group… needs to be studied in INDIAN context….
proteins and lectins ie genes are different in different “members” of beans that are all lumped by plant list and kew as dolichos lablab / lablab purpurens
May be we can have a week just for the lablab in feb or march next year … gives us time to collect data and grow a few of these ourselves in our yards and or balconies…
this ‘ONE ” name is a source of much much confusion… for me.. at least…

Location – Vasai ( Dist.-Palghar, Maharashtra)

likely to be Lablab purpureus. can you find some beans on the vine


Thanks … No, I didn’t observe beans on the plant. Maybe pollination had not occured yet.


if they look like what we call VALOR in gujarati

they would be purple (the green valor is the usual vegggie)


Phaseolus vulgaris


Is it “rajama” ( राजमा) you mean to say … ?


The flowers look like the ones of Lablab purpureus to me.
What we call in Marathi as Val Papdi.


Thanks, … for the Id. I think it matches with images at Lablab purpureus

Pl. check with images at
