I love this nitrogen-fixing summer crop and Mary Shalhub-Davis just mailed a bunch of seeds to Josh Jamison to grow at H.E.A.R.T. this summer. I love the whole pods boiled when young and tender, older pods filled with plump tender seeds grilled with olive oil, garlic and salt and eaten like giant edamames, plus use the dried beans as I would soybeans. It took a while but I found this video that one of my blog readers in SE Asia sent me a few years ago showing how this nitrogen fixer feeds people while healing and nourishing the soil. LOVES our muggy summers and can be perennial if winters are mild. The flowers have a wonderful perfume, especially in the morning.

  1. What is the name of that beautiful bean. I live in Brooksville and would love to try to grow it.
