  • @ashes999: I added some pictures of the vine (I'm assuming closeup is better than seeing literally the full vine).

1 Answer 1


The plant looks like wisteria to me. Hard to tell since the plant has mostly lost its leaves in the picture and doesn't have flowers. You may want to look at wisteria pictures online and compare them to what your plant looks like in the summer.

Unfortunately, wisteria beans are poisonous, so don't eat.


  • I'll have to wait for summer to tell for sure, but I'm accepting this answer as it's probably correct.
