GREEN BEANS GROWING ON TREES?

No, but it sure looks like it!

It's just a Catalpa tree,
with long slender seed pods now forming.

Catalpas are popular ornamental
shade trees in the Midwest,
with gigantic heart-shaped leaves
and inedible "bean" pods.

The Catalpa is sometimes called
the "cigar tree."
