Growing Asparagus Pea, also Winged bean

View the Asparagus Pea page

26 May 19 Theresa (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I live in Newcastle and grow winged bean in my garden. It is the second year I tried to grow this plant. First year the plant died in winter but the root is still alive so I continued to grow them last spring. They have some flowers( white/purple) right now and have some fruits already. However, the fruits are very tiny, after two weeks still not much growth. Does it mean the weather in Newcastle is too cold for my winded beans? I got another type of seeds which claims it will flowers in colder climate but need to wait until spring time. Thanks for your time.
