scientific name for 2 Filipino vegetables

Hi folks:

I'm trying to search for the scientific name of two vegetables from the Philippines. The first is called "bataw" and the second is called "sigadilyas". I suspect the two might be members of the Leguminosae (Fabaceae), especially the first, as the seeds came in a flattened pod. Maybe Violet or Rose-Marie (or anyone else) might know? Thanks for your help!

Hi Violet, your wealth of info. and knowledge on Asian vegetables never ceases to amaze me. I don't know how you do it, but you always come up with the responses and they are always correct :-)!

These are indeed the vegetables. Thanks so much!

Glad to be able to help Marcelo. Will you be growing these in your garden or preparing them for dinner someday?

The sigadilyas is a Winged Bean in English as posted by VoiletZ6. She is right. I think the other one is similar to Lima Beans.

the bean is also popular with Indians who know it as papri in Gujerati. It needs thorough cooking, and some help with seasoning.

As I spent almost my entire 4 years of Navy time in the Orient; I acquired a taste for the food; now I'm becoming interested in growing it. Reading about the Winged Bean prior to this; all parts of the plant are edible, even the roots. Sounds like a very valuable type of plant

Do you have recipes Rain1950?

New to this forum... most varieties of Winged Bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus) are daylength-sensitive, and will not produce pods (or tubers) outside the tropics. There is a day-neutral variety sold by ECHO (a non-profit out of Florida), and one previously carried by J.L. Hudson. I will be trialing both this year in Zone 5, I'll let you know the results. Hyacinth bean (Lablab purpureus, or more commonly known as Dolichos lablab) should be eaten only after research into proper methods of preparation (many Filipinos know this), because some parts are toxic, especially the dry seeds.
