Hyacinth Beans! ** INFORMATION***

***Lots of questions about these. I’ve always grown them here in the Mid-South as a decorative vine.  In the orient and Africa they are grown as a food crop. When young, all parts are edible including the leaves and flowers. Like nasturtiums the flowers look wonderful in salads.  I have not eaten them and will continue to eat my garden variety green beans and enjoy these for their color. You can buy seeds HERE***

The beans are here! I was so worried that the heat and slower growing of my vine would mean no beans this year. If I didn’t get any beans, I wouldn’t have a vine next year since I planted all I had saved from 2 years ago.

We are getting some much needed rain from the hurricane so you can see the droplets on the beans this morning.

Aren’t these gorgeous!?!?
