Bean: Dow Gauk (vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquepedalis)

This crazy plant grows a pod up to half a yard long and is used in all sorts of traditional cooking from China to Thailand to the West Indies to the African continent. Cooks pretty much like a green bean but it tastes more like asparagus. It is also called “yardlong asperagus”
