Is it UFO? - No it is a Lablab Bean

Is it UFO? No just a Lablab Bean
We grow Lablab beans in our garden. They are great climbers growing for years. We grow them on pyramid poles above a garden bed so they provide shade to the bed during hot summer days. These beans have beautiful purple flowers attracting bumble bees which in return pollinate the  garden. A bean plant produce a lot of beans through the year. We have harvested kilos and dry these beautiful black beans with white stripe. These are great for soup, and we cook goulash or make a dip.
