DESCRIPTION

Hyacinth Bean is a delicious edible, perennial bean from South Asia and Southeast Asia.  The bean is a prolific and strong grower, with relative few disease and insect issues.  The plant is also quite decorative, with bright foliage and a profusion of flowers.  Hyacinth bean is perennial in warm climate (Zone 9 and up) and can be grown as an annual elsewhere.

Pick pods when they are young, before the seeds inside have had a chance to fatten. PODS SHOULD BE COOKED, raw beans can cause digestive stress for some if uncooked.
