    there are some strange beans and I think about give them a try, but I should know if it is worth wile regarding yields and taste compared to "ordinary" beans:

    gauda beans
    madagascar bean
    rice bean sword bean

    All in subtropical climate (Brisbane)

    I have got a packet of winged beans

    Madegascar bean

    I have friends who have given me beans of Christmas Lima Bean, very similar to madegascar bean. This has been very prolific, almost to weed status, in Sydney. It is perennial in nature and beans are harvested when dry, rather than as a green bean. Every time we have harvested there have been buckets of pods to pick.

    Highly reccomend if it is the same plant.
