HEIRLOOM We first fell in love with Hyacinth Bean visiting Roger Swain in New Hampshire, where their electric vines, flowers & pods were spiraling 20+ feet up his gorgeous stone home. Their vigor was unmatched by any other pole bean we grew, creating a living wall of lilac, burgundy & forest green all season long, even resisting the first light frosts.

Organic Hyacinth Bean HEIRLOOM We first fell in love with Hyacinth Bean visiting Roger Swain in New Hampshire, where their electric vines, flowers & pods were spiraling 20+ feet up his gorgeous stone home. He graciously sent us home with a handful of seeds we harvested together and we fell in love again, watching them grow. Their vigor was unmatched by any other pole bean we grew, creating a living wall of lilac, burgundy & forest green all season long, even resisting the first light frosts.

The entire plant is technically edible, though the only part we eat are the tender, rich violet flowers in salads & desserts. Their glossy magenta pods are quite tough & their seeds require soaking like soybeans (which is more complex than typical beans). They are commonly enjoyed in Asian, Thai & Indian cooking.

Both blooms & pods are used as cut flowers; the pods may be dried for arrangements, as well.

Also known as Bonavist bean or Lablab bean.
